I am a new member to the site from Hawaii. We are anxiously awaiting our chick shipment from Chickensforbackyards.com. We have had some hiccups with them already and now I am starting to worry about our chicks which are due to ship tomorrow. I assumed they will be shipped USPS Priority Express vs. USPS Priority since when I placed the order in June my shipping charges were $34.99 + $25.00 (for permits) but I have been looking around the forum and other hatchery websites and see that Priority is used even for Hawaii shipments so I started to really fret about this and emailed the person I have been corresponding with at Chickensforbackyards and now suddenly I cannot get a reply to two emails which is odd since she has been really quick in the past so I called and spoke to someone who had no idea which USPS method is used but that it should arrive within 3 days. Sadly, 3 days transit for Priority to reach me is the exception, sometimes things arrive in 3 but more often they don't. Needless to say i'm just getting sick about this and trying to stay hopeful that they will be sent Express and if they aren't I really hope they can get here safe and alive because if they don't arrive by Saturday........ If anyone has any knowledge of the shipping method they use or advice I would love to hear it, Thanks!
