    My chicks came in this morning!! I have them at work. I called and called the post office for 2 hours to see if they had arrived, they called me back when I was on my way to work. Oh well, I will just take my lunch break a little early to get these guys home. They are so cute!!

    I hope yours come in soon!!

    I've noticed that in state (Texas) shipments usually arrive the next morning after shipping. Out of state usually arrive the next day. Just an observation from experience and reading post. Good Luck and enjoy the fuzzybutts, they grow up fast.

    Mine came in last week. I was so antsy waiting in line at the Post Office. Finally I get up to the counter and told them I was there to pick up some chicks. I got some weird looks. But then the clerk went in the back to get them and you could hear them loud and clear.

    "You're getting real chickens" someone said. Yes what did you think I was doing? LOL
