    A friend of mine, today, mentioned that when he and his wife were stationed in Saipan, and order chicks from Murray McMurray......and they arrived in perfect condition. AMAZING!!!!

    I would guess they have them drop-shipped from someone MUCH closer than IOWA, lol!!!
    Glad they made it safe. I'm surprised they let military folks have birds on base. That's really cool!

    True. How cool would that be? I am still fascinated by people that get frozen custard to them delivered via the mail and it doesn't melt!

    That is an amazing story. Did they say how long it took and how the chicks were packed? Just curious.
