    Meyer hatchery has started pullets at 17 weeks, i was going to order some. Do they hold up in shipping okay? I don't live too far from the hatchery about 5 hours, so i think they would probally get here the next day. They said they put a gel pack in for vitamins, but was w2ondering how others have dealt with shipped birds?
