    Hello All, first post here. I have been doing a lot of research on ducks and feel very prepared for their arrival. I'm wanting to take off work the day they arrive to make sure they get settled into the brooder but the 3 day window Meyer gives is a little inconvenient.

    Does anyone have any experience with the time it takes? They are suppose to be shipping today. I live in Massachusetts.

    Thanks,
    Nick

    I'm in Maine and my birds that ship any time on Monday always arrive first thing Wednesday.

    Dennin, what the post office does is out of everyone's control.

    They get there when the post office is darn good and ready to deliver them.

    I got 5 chicks from Meyer last week all arrived healthy and are thriving, they were hatched Monday and I got the call from the PO at 10am Tuesday morning...Good Luck I'm thinking of getting Ducks, maybe next year

    I have never ordered from Meyer, but I plan on ordering quite a few ducks this year. Are they a pretty good hatchery? I've heard good, and bad. Or is it just luck of the draw?
