So we went to our local post office today to say that we are exspecting some chicks in the mail. They said oh we will deliver them to your house. We said that we'll just pick them up at the post office. they demanded that they'd deliver them. This is my first time ordering chickens, so I'm nervous as it is. Has anyone had this happen to them before? Has anyone had there chicks delivered to their house? I am going to call the post office in the morning and demand that I MUST pick my chicks up. This is what Cackle Hatchery says on there website: "Each post office has their own policy. We put on your box all the phone numbers you gave to us and we instruct the post office to call you. You should call the post office on the day you expect the delivery of the chicks. Delivery can be 1-3 days." It also says that Cackle encourages everyone to just pick there chicks up at the post office. I'm not sure what the problem is. Would the chicks just be thrown in the mail truck with a ton of letters and paper and be dropped off whenever they reached my house on their route? I don't want my chicks to be bumping along in the back of a hot truck all day long with a bunch of mail!!!!!!!!
