    my chicks were sent out wednesday, i took the day off today so i could get to post office early. i called and they didn't arrive. then they said they would get 2 more deliveries by 10:00. so i called after 10 and still nothing. they might get one more delivery late afternoon. i am afraid i will be picking up a box of dead chicks sat morning.

  2. Try not to worry , they should be fine if the arrive by tomarrow. When they arrive just give them some warm sugar water.

    Oh please please, inquiring minds want to know! Hoping all is well.
    They must have made it ok and that's why no answer. Much too busy with the little ones to come online and tell us. [​IMG]

    thanks, i am really bummed out, but even more for the guy thats going to pick up the rest sun. i keep reducing his numbers. i might ask him to wait a few more days just to get them healthy and as stress free as possible be fore making another scary ride in a box. even though its a 15 min ride.
    well i have learned a lesson. don't mail order chicks. i was worried i would not find any close bye, but now its the season they are all over my local craigslist. nothing against the hatcheries just the post office. priority mail=2days not 4.
