    That's a photo of some of my buckeyes and golden laced Wyandottes I got from Meyer. They shipped Monday and I got them Wednesday. Thus far, all are doing fine.

    And here's a photo of my 12 keets that survived out of the 23 that shipped on a Friday and got stuck in a PO distribution center for a weekend!!

    At first I thought ordering chicks from one state over from mine would make more sense than from farther away. But these poor things road trucks for 2 days and stopped at more than 5 different post office locations. I think I may order from someplace that will fly them closer next time!

    Nice ones, I hope mine arrive in as good of shape. I ordered from Meyer also and I live in Northwest TN. I am supposed to get them in two weeks- hatched out on the 11th but I'm really worried about the heat with temps around the 100 degree mark this weekend. Anyway just thought I would chime in Good Luck with you and yours!
