My chicks are to be mailed out from My Pet Chicken on Mon May 6th. I live in Mass so I would think they should arrive sometime Tuesday. What do others do about going to work during the first week? My husband gets out of work at 4 and could go to the post office Tuesday at 4 if the chicks are there. He would be willing to dip their beaks in water and put them in their brooder for me if he HAD to. If the chicks arrived at the post office say Wedn morning and had to sit there until 4 when my husband gets out would that be ok? Would their survival rate be hindered by sitting at the post office a few hours until one of us got out of work? Also, is it ok for me to go to work and leave them the following day or should they be supervised for a certain period of time for the first few weeks?
