    So I placed my poultry order with McMurray this year (I purchased from them last year and was very pleased with my order). This year I decided on 25 meat birds, and "Backyard Combination #2" which consists of 6 turkeys and 9 ducks.

    For some reason, I decided to use my debit card rather than my credit card to pay for the orders. THANK GOD! My order is scheduled to hatch and ship this weekend. I was online paying bills and noticed that MM had deducted the money for the shipment... THEN I noticed that one of the deductions was for $260! :eek: I KNOW I didn't spend that much on my order.

    I called customer service and they reviewed my order... at some point someone keyed in 215 turkeys and ducks instead of 15! Good thing I didn't put the order on the credit card - I'm not in the habit of checking the charge details and I may not have caught the error. Could you imagine my surprise had I shown up at the Post Office to pick up my 15 birds to only to find 215 birds??? [​IMG]

    Makes me think of the signature on one of the BYC says " It hard to soar like an eagle when your surrounded by turkeys". [​IMG]
    I would have believed that on this one.
