My first time to mail order chicks. Ordered the MPC 25 Pullet Rainbow Special shipping Mon, 9/21. I got my confirmation email from MPC that they are shipping on 9/21 and no further contact will occur. Told I wouldn't get a confirmation # upfront. Instructed to call MPC only if I don't get the chicks by Thurs, Sept 24th and only then will they call the hatchery to get a tracking #. I just called my local PO to notify them that I'm expecting chicks and what should I do since my Mail Carrier isn't a PO employee but is contracted to deliver mail. The PO told me that they are likely being shipped Express Mail and that would be a different provider then my normal mail carrier and she couldn't help me without a tracking number. She said the PO here delivers chicks to your door and doesn't call folks to come pickup at the PO. YIKES - that makes me nervous. Anyone from Olympia area order chicks from MPC recently? How did you get them? Thank you so much.
