    Oh Barb So sorry to hear your news. Mine arrived safely thank heavens. They were shipped on the 13 as well But I ordered them from Cackle in MO. Hoope you have better luck with the next batch. Its geting so hot I hate the tought that these babies don't get any water for 2 days. Mine drank right away. Even the turkeys (they say you have to teach them ) They dove into the water. We live in Florida and its been in the 90"s here. Good luck Micki
