    Depends on the weather between the hatchery and your house.

    I received 36 chicks last Tuesday that made the trip fine all the way to south Louisiana. All are thriving real well with no problems. It was bitterly cold in Iowa when they shipped.

    I got mine from MMH no problems. I live in Colorado. Alot depend on the route they have to travel and how good your Post Office is at getting them to you. Mine were shipped on Sunday and I got a call Sunday night from the Post Office Sort center to come get them. That's good service.

    We received an order of 25 up here in Alaska on monday. 1 DOA, 1 soon after and 1 that night (bloody poo).

    The post office has some pretty strict rules for shipping, if the temperature while in route is expected to be severe they wont except the shippment for transport.
    Talk to the folks at your post office, give them a # to get ahold of you at 24 hours a day so you can pick them up and get them feed and water as soon as possable. they'll thank you for it later....... a box of chicks can be really loud.
