    Hi all - sorry if this has been discussed, I searched and couldn't come up with anything. I'm thinking of ordering 4 juveniles from either Meyers or Murray McMurray. Has anyone done this? Were the birds in good shape when they arrived? I've never mail ordered so I'm curious if it's too stressful on older pullets. They would be overnight shipped. Thanks!

    They will be fine. Shipping will be costly though.

    I am doing this in April, the shipping is super expensive though, over 100 dollars
