    hey tim here i have been a buy stander and coming on to the site when we needed help well i thought i would join and and hopefully help out when i can me and my wife have around 60 to 70 chickens maria my wife treets them like kids so you can say that we have 60 kids and it feels like it sometimes. we have just gone through a realy tough time . my wife maria ordered 100 chicks from mucmurary hatchery and this is not going to be a bash at them . but we were told that they had been sent and we had to watch for them .well 3 days went buy and my wife started to freak out . we finally got them 5 days later well you know what comes next. we opened the box and 33 were alive the rest had diead . i dont know what mucmurray could have done any different but some humans just dont get it the box had 2 day priority rush delivery stampped all over it . but it is like getting kicked in the teeth your upset but you dont know who to blame . o well we lost some so we endded up with 29 out of the 106 that were shipped i will say that all moneys was refunded. any way we have some americanas and new hampshire and some buffs in different colours hope to talk to you soon tim maria

    what a horrible thing to experience. I have tracked shipments for a friend of mine and it just seems like the PO ping pongs them from one state to another with no rhyme or reason to it. Once she had pullet coming from NY to suburban Chicago and she took a detour to Arizona - why?
