    Not sure if this is the right spot for this, but today is supposedly ship day for my new flock from MPC. From anyone's experience, do they send you a notification and tracking number? It's supposed to be exceptionally cold the next 2 days and I dont want them sitting at the post office longer than they have to. Thanks!

    Usually MPC calls you to confirm shipment. Also most Post Offices will call you to let you know the peeps are there - the peeping boxes drive 'em crazy!!

    Sounds like I should call them today when they open. The reason I need the tracking number is that I work 90 minutes from the house. Need a little lead time

    90 minutes is ok for the chicks, frustrating for you! It certainly won't hurt to call the Post Office, even if the chicks aren't there yet, it will give them a heads up. If the post staff are friendly enough they might even call you when your babies arrive.

    I placed my order on MyPetChicken.com in January with an April 7th ship date. It's 1pm on April 7th and I just received an email saying that my chicks have shipped and a USPS tracking number! So I guess they have started providing tracking numbers now! Yahoo! Can't wait to see my babies!!

    Hmm... I got my shipping confirmation email right after I'd called MPC about my order. Somehow I think they only send the email to you if you raise up an issue.

    I'm betting yours are coming on time! The lady I talked to said that only one order would be delayed and that everything was shipped out around 2:30.
