    Received my order today from MPC of 10 bantams-1 was doa, 1 died shortly afterward, 1 doesn't look so good. They were shipped express mail on 4/21. I called and they were very nice, credited me for 3 and want me to keep them informed if I lose anymore. They said they are going to be getting new heat pads that will last much longer than the ones they have now.

    I think you will be okay, because they do ship express mail-I am just too far away I think and also we did have a cold snap. I found MPC very good to work with.

    I happily received my 8 gals a week ago from MPC. All are still doing well. I was a little disappointed that they did not give me advance warning - when I ordered, they confirmed that the girls would be shipped the week of the 13th. I thought they also said they would contact me again in advance of the package coming. Thankfully, my postal worker brought them safely to my door the first day they arrived in my hometown.[​IMG]
