    I had ordered from Meyer in January requesting this week as my ship week. They shipped on Monday and I picked them up at the PO at 7:30. The heat pack was still warm and they had a blob of grogel in there.
    They all made it! (7 of them) and I am in a small town. All eating and drinking. The little sussex needed a rear end wash, but seems good otherwise. She is really little compared to the Delaware who looks like a monster next to her.
