    [​IMG] My baby chicks are coming!

    I ordered 26, baby chicks from Meyer Hatchery, plus a free one, I'm so excited this is my first time ordering from a hatchery and can't wait!

    -I ordered 26 Assorted Rare Egg Layer Females and added the free Meyer Meal Maker Chick. It's a free chick they add and all you have to do is raise it, and donate the eggs it produces :) This will be so fun. They are being shipped March 3rd, and should get here between then and March 8th!

    Wish me luck peoples!

    I'll post lots and lots of pictures!

    P.S, Is there any tips you guys can give me? Should I call the post office a few days before so they no to call me ASAP? Please give me any tips you can, Thanks!!!

    i have ordered chicks offline many a times so i have a few pointers but your heading in the right track i would call the post office a week before and say that they are coming i would again call three days before and tell them they need to call you right when they get their. my first time ordering chicks i didnt do these things and my chicks came in early and the post office waited till the next to tell .i had six chicks die because of the cold tile floor they got put on make sure you inform them and im sure you will be satisfied

    We are also getting chicks from Meyer. Fortunately it is within driving distance for us so we are just picking them up! Not until March 19th though :( But I will just have to wait!!

    I have had conversations with several people here in the local cleveland area who have had great luck with Meyer. Good luck to you!

    Awesome! I am very happy with Meyer's service and if these babies turn out OK, I will most definitely order from them again and again!

    Thanks! and good luck to you to!
