    What is the longest amount of time that chicks can survive in the mail?


    So far I have 5 RIR pullets that got rerouted and have been in the mail for 47 hours~.

    I called the post office and the guy said he may get them by 10:00 tomorrow and he will call me if he does. [​IMG]


    I'm just a tad nervous since they have been delayed and this is my first time ordering live chicks (I did order hatchable eggs, my first time, a month ago). [​IMG]

    I would make sure you have fresh water and starter feed when you get them. GroGel PlusB if you have some on hand. They can live several days without food/water during their long journey.

    Quote:that's right. Hope to read that they arrive safe and sound to you soon. If you don't, call your hatchery and let them know. [​IMG]
