Hi everyone, A breeder was mentioned on the Black Marans forum here, and I ordered 12 straight run chicks from Michigan Marans (www.mimarans.webs.com) website and got on a waiting list. At the time, and for a week or so after, I was at the bottom of the list, and the hatch dates were noted along with a post that the breeder was about "three weeks out". Three weeks about was about the time the latest batch was due to hatch (6/4 if I recall). Now I see the order list is longer (by one) but the hatch dates are no longer shown. And the post has been changed to "five weeks out". I am hoping that applies to any new orders and that my hatch date is still that 6/4 that was posted while and after I purchased. The problem is there appears to be no way to contact this person from the website. Trying to use the "contact us" button results in a submission error stating the owner has exceed their space (I think it is a free business website and probably has some stringent space restrictions). No phone number, no address, no name. The 12 straight run chicks are pre paid ($130). Anyone have personal experience with this breeder that might clue me in on when these chicks might arrive? I am still thinking 6/4 - 6 except that it seems I would be contacted with this information, so this has me worried. Or anyone know how to contact this person? I don't think it is any kind of scam but I am getting worried about the heat here in Missouri and already feel I am risking intense heat with an early June delivery. Additionally, I can't sit around all day waiting for a call from the post office that is not going to come. I guess Amazon has me spoiled Since I am new to this, I guess I dont know what to expect. Am I wrong to be concerned?
