Quote:I ordered them from MM they were shipped saturday and I didn't get them till late tuesday so they were pretty cold and stressed when I picked them up.They are RIR and doing well now chirping away in the brooder. This is the first time Im raising chickens so Im keeping my fingers crossed all works out ok.

I'm sorry to hear about your 8 chicks that didn't make it. Did the PO give you a reason for them being that late? What kind did you get? I hope the rest of yours continue to stay healthy.

thanks for the warm welcome, the chicks all seem to be doing very well right now . I will try to get pics up soon hopefully by the weekend . The woman at the post office didn't really know why the chicks got delayed and I was just happy that any of them made it I really didn't press her for an answer.They are alot of fun to watch!!

You should've ordered from Ideal, I ordered and all the chicks from them came alive. They were shipped Wednesday of last week, and they got here Friday of last week. A couple of my yokohamas died, but that's because they are a fragile breed.
I have another order (of 25) that got shipped out from Ideal today!
Gosh I love chicks!
