    Need info. I have had eggs shipped to I live in Cleveland Tn. I would like to order some chicks, but don't know about this zip code embargo and is it still in effect. Has anyone had problems getting chicks shipped in Tn. Appreciate any help on how and what to do.

    I believe you're referring to the zip code routes that regularly have shipments of dry ice.
    You'll have to contact the post office to see for sure.

    this is on some breeders sites if you live in certain zip codes they cannot ship to that code. Would like to know if anyone else has had chicks shipped in tn.

    Greenfire Farms has the same info on their ordering page.

    I guess I'll have to contact the post office to know for sure.

    I've had several orders of chicks and hatching eggs shipped to me in Jamestown, TN. Not sure how far that is from Cleveland, but I don't see why you'd have a problem having them sent.
