    Our chicks were shipped yesterday afternoon from Ohio. The PO distribution center just called and they have arrived! Yay, that was quick! Since the facility is "closed" (no pulic allowed) I thought they were going to put them on a truck to another facility where I could pick them up.... but the man said he is going to drive them over to my house in his warm car instead! (I live very near the distribution center). I can't wait!

    Olivia was begging to stay home from school for their arrival, but she'll just have to wait...

    We're splitting the order with another local family, so after I get them warmed up and make sure all are OK I'll pre-heat my car and take their chicks over to them.

    So exciting!

    I am waiting! Mine shipped from Ohio yesterday too. Tracking # shows they went through Philly processing center at 7:30am this morning.

    Talked to the PO around 8:30. They didnt have them and said the will not get another delivery until tomorrow early AM!

    Where are these chicks going to spend the night? In a truck somewhere??? Low tonight around 40 degrees. high today around 52.
