    Hi,

    My chicks were suppose to ship today, but I never received an e-mail or phone call. I ordered them through MyPetChicken.com (MPC) Should I assume they have been shipped and might get here in the morning, or do you think they haven't shipped yet?

    This is my 1st time ordering chickens, so I'm excited, anxious and worried. I've read some horror stories on the forum and I'm hoping that shipping goes o.k. for my little ones.

    Thanks,

    Amy

    If you give them a call they are very nice.
    My chicks shipped on the day they told me this was my 2nd year to order from them .Good luck

    Thanks! [​IMG] Do you remember if they let you know when they actually shipped, or did they just tell you what day they will be shipping?

    Thanks,

    Amy

    Amy,

    They'll tell you the ship date when you submit the order but won't contact you again. They are nice and will gladly confirm that a shipment has gone out if you call/email them.

    My MPC order included:
    2 blue polish (turned out 1 black, 1 splash)
    1 blue cochin (very VERY cute bird!!)
    1 BR
    1 australorp

    All are healthy, happy, eating/pooping machines.

    Yeah! [​IMG] If this is the case with my little girls, then they should be on their way and maybe I will get them tomorrow! Yes, I am very excited about them. Tomorrow is my birthday, so it would be wonderful to have them here safe and sound.

    Thanks!

    I forgot to add that mine arrived the day after being shipped: Ohio to W. WA State in 24 hours... flawless.
