of the 51 I ordered from McMurray. I live in rural south GA so it was a long trip from Iowa, and they did not arrive til today, Tuesday. Looked like they had piled in a corner for warmth and suffocated. Worked with 4 or 5 other puny ones for a few hours and it looks like they will survive. At this point, all the survivors look healthy and are running around and eating and such. Just too long in shipping. I won't order from them again simply because they ship on Saturday, which I assume makes for one inactive day in shipping, Sunday. No complaint about the hatchery; that's not the problem, though they will bear the credit expense. I ordered 6 different varieties and cannot yet identify all the chicks, but I do know the Australorps all survived, and half the buff Orps did not. Ideal would make more sense for me, I know, but I wanted some Speckled Sussex hens.... will be a while before I know whether I have any.... They included at least 3 or 4 extras, Orps.
