Anyone in Oregon or neighbor state that has ordered from MPC before? I am guessing there will be tracking on the express shipment and I can find out after its been sent when the peeps are arriving, but that makes it hard to schedule time off :P When I ordered they couldn't tell me due to hatch times and when they actually get out for shipping but expected probably two days. Any input would be great!
Chickens for Backyards. I placed the order beginning of January and they immediately emailed me with a shipping date of 2/22. It said they'd arrive within 2 to 3 days. I have Wednesdays off so that worked out perfectly and my husband arranged to go in late on Thursday in case that's when they'd arrive. Then they called me on Wednesday because one of the breeds hadn't hatched well to see if I would be okay with changing my order. They told me then that they were being shipped that afternoon and would arrive Wednesday. The tracking info also said that. They used 2 day shipping.
My advice would be to call the post office prior to them arriving to let them know they are coming. Also, if you have not heard from them by the time open, call to see if they are there and ready to be picked up. Apparently my post office doesn't have the brightest employees. The instructions on the box clearly said to call me right away and nobody did. I called a few minutes after they opened and they told me I could get them.
