    I got a call from the Post Office in Pocatello (45 miles away from me) wanting to know if I wanted to pick up a box of eggs yesterday morning. They were concerned that eggs were like chicks and wanted to make sure they made it OK. I told them I would pick up all packages down there today instead because yesterday there was just the one box. As I typed this post, I got a call from my local PO who said that I had five boxes. I'm on my way now to see what arrived there and I'm still expecting a call from the Hub in Pocatello about more. Maybe I can set them all today. [​IMG]

    LOL, Buster!
    My local P.O. lady says "Bock-Bock" when I walk in the door now [​IMG] It is kinda nice to know that someone in the P.O. cares enough to watch out for your eggs! Paula is the greatest! I just love her because she knows to call me about my eggs and always makes sure everything is in order when I ship as well.

    that is great news Buster [​IMG] My local post lady has my phone numbers on her roll-a-dex [​IMG] My problem seems to stem from the Indianapolis area. Seems the shipping people there want to "play" with the boxes marked "fragile". We can't prove it is there but that is where my post lady thinks it is happening. All we can do is hope for the best. Keep us posted on your hatchlings. [​IMG]
