    somewhere in/between Illinois or California, and are the following breeds: Campine, Houdan, Crevecoeur, Cochin banty, and D'Uccle, then please take good care of them for me. My order was lost in the mail. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] I just hope someone has found them and they are safe.

    San Francisco. But thanks for you help, i really appreciate it. I think they are coming to my post office sooner or later, but its been almost a week, so I'd rather they be at someone's home than sitting at some post office. I hope they are peeping if they come....

    Did you get them from a hatchery? The one I used said that if they do not arrive within a set number of days (I think 3 or 4), to call them and they would try to do a trace. They might be able to trace the poor babies down.

    If the post office has them they will know. Ours just came on Friday and the guy knew right away where it was and you could here them in the front [​IMG] I hope they get found Quickly! I would call the person who sent them as well in hopes that you can retrace the chicks steps.

    Good luck!

    Is either the PO or Supplier going to make it right? I would think that it would fall on the USPS.
