    I just read on the My Pet Chicken site that there are 25 vaccinated assorted day-old pullet chicks that have been left at the Summit, NJ Post Office this morning. They are free to whomever can go get them this morning. The post said to email My Pet Chicken at [email protected] if you want the chicks and can get there to pick them up. I just wanted to pass this on, to help those poor abandoned chicks!

    Quote:That's horrible. Sometimes I just don't understand people. Why would someone pay good money for that many chicks and then not show up to claim them? It makes no sense to me. I'd hope anyone that orders chicks would understand that these are living things, not some inanimate object that can just be left setting in the back of the P.O. indefinitely until someone feels like coming to get it.

    I'm glad someone took them; I just wonder what was going on with whoever ordered them in the first place. [​IMG]
