    [​IMG] [​IMG] What do I do?????? They were supposed to be shipped overnight express BUT THEY WEREN'T! Stupid hatchery!
    They were sent 9 am on Wednesday, and now its 10:30 am on Friday. They probably hatched on Tuesday!!!! All the mail arrives at my post office at 8:00 am, so that means they aren't arriving today!!! I've waited since mid may to get these babies, and I do not want them to die!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Does that mean they are at the airport?!?!
    Are you allowed to go get them there? Please, please please help/ advise! (they do not have a shipping #. WHAT A STUPID #%^$##$%^% Hatchery!

    which hatchery? Have you called them yet? Did you make sure they put your phone # on the outside of the shipping box? Is there another larger post office somewhere near you that may have them? I hope you find your babies alive and well... this long delay with this heat doesn't add up to a promising end...

    And have you called the post office to verify that they did not arrive? I know when mine came, the post office didn't call till late morning/early afternoon. I thought they hadn't come, either, but they were there. I hope you track them down quickly.

    I'm not sure where you are, our day-olds came from Iowa, To New Jersry, Shipped on Fri got a call Sunday Morning at 7:30 From USPS sectional. We hot footed up there and picked ours up. 1 1/2 hrs away. You may want to find out where your sectional is and give them a call. Take a deep breath start calling. Your angry, be courteous. I hope for the best for you. Majority of hatcherys ship same day hatching.

    I know this is really important to you, Campine Lover, but you need to stick to one thread on this topic only, okay? [​IMG]
