My chicks will ship next Wednesday from Ideal. I know they will be here Thursday because I have already talked to a postal supervisor ( one of my Customers DH's) who let me know it is a straight shot from Cameron to Fort Worth or Dallas and then over to Arlington which is smack dab between the two and probably no more than a 45 minute drive to either places main post office. I would even drive to one of those post offices if they would call me but the super said no, they won't call until they are in Arlington. So, they will go from whichever one of those two to the main post office in Arlington- about 15 minutes from me before they are moved over to my local branch. So will one of the post offices here in town, either the main one or mine call me when the chicks get there, or is there a chance they will be put on the regular mail truck with the rest of the days mail? The mailman doesn't come by here until 3:00 in the afternoon! I want my babies in the brooder and out of the box ASAP! Can y'all tell I'm a nervous first time chicken momma? Can someone from the been there done that crowd please tell me what the normal routine is on the post offices part? I just don't want my babies on truck after truck after truck... Geez how am I gonna make it another week?!
