    Well my small order of chicks from MPC is due today. I took off from work so I can get them quickly into the brooder. Well it's 0845 and no call from my local PO yet. I hope they come today. On a brighter side while at the buss stop this morning my neighbor inform me they ordered 25 chicks from McMurray. It will be their first go-round with chickens. Theirs are due June 6th. So now our street will be loaded with beautiful backyard chickens. I have told her about BYC and I do believe she has been a lurker here gathering info.

    I spoke to them on Fri and they said they would call early when they arrive. So I guess they will come tomorrow? Tomorrow I work late so I will be home in the AM. Annie3001 what part of CT are you in? I am on the boarded of NY and CT between Danbury and Kent.

    May I suggest calling the PO anyway? I left my numbers there when I was expecting eggs, turns out that the guy in charge that day couldn't be bothered to call. The next time there was someone else on that day and she called asap.

    Quote:I stopped at the PO and no chicks as of yet. Also called MPC and they do not show it as shipped as of yet and see no reason as to why they shouldn't ship tomorrow. Well I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
