Well, I never did get my catalog from Meyer but I went ahead and called in my order as some folks suggested. But, now I am concerned about how the whole order process went. The woman I spoke with said they were only doing "handwritten pre-orders". She took down my name, address, phone# etc. and I gave her my order. I did not have a particular date in mind for receiving my chicks. I figured they would give me that. She could not tell me ANYTHING about when my order might be filled. She just said they would call me with a date. (I am doing a pick-up order, not shipping). She said they would fill the requests in the order in which they were taken and that there were a lot of folks ahead of me. I offered my credit card info and she did not want that and said I would pay at the time of pick-up??? This is my first ever order and my first experience with chicks. Is this typical? Has anyone else ordered from Meyer and had this happen? I am afraid I will get passed over and not ever get into the system!
