    My brother was just in the main post office in Greenville, NC on Memorial Drive. The postmaster said that someone had denied a 3'x5' box of baby chicks and they are quickly dying in the box there. He asked my brother to take them off his hands. He can't do it as he just rents a room from someone. Can anyone help?? Is this possible? I feel so bad!! I wish I could help!!

    thanks! Reposted and will call animal control. How does the post office deal with this kind of thing? And what kind of person would leave that many chicks to die?? My bleeding heart is, well, bleeding here in Texas. So sad.
