    Most times shipping on chicks takes from 2 to 3 days. Sometimes only one.

    Just keep hoping it's soon. [​IMG]

    It depends on how they were shipped and how close to a main sorting facility you are. Express or Priority gives you a time frame of 2-3 days but I've seen it get there next day. Next Day shipping gets there of course next day. Call the hatchery. They should be able to give you a tracking number. I ordered adult birds the other week express mail. They got from Ohio to the sorting facility an hour and a half away from me in california in one day. But they would not have made it to my post office until the following day, so I drove and picked them up.

    Be sure to go to the post office and give them your contact info.

    No offense, but I don't think posting the same question 3 times is going to get any more answers than posting once. [​IMG]

    It'll also get you points in the new "infraction system".

    Don't be scared, just do all you can (contact shipper for ETA & call local Post Office for update) and what will be, will be.​
