    It's not all PO's.I have never lost a chick during shipping, and only ever get a few smashed eggs,,,now air cells are another story.

    I also never have the boxes marked, no fragile stickers, no hatching eggs on box....when I send out I only mark boxes when asked to.

    got the 2 roosters tonight, turned out to be very nice delawares, not sure the young kid knew what they were, he just knew they weren't hens..so let him take 3 hen's for them and didn't charge him . hubby now thinks I am nuts, but I can't help itwhen a young kid is just getting started..
    bad side, I had to cut the wings, the only pen I have available has a 3 foot fence and I want them to stay put till they get used to the new surroundings

    LilMissPurdy, yer bad! Too funny.

    ChickyDee, I use DHs DeWalt 18 volt cordless drill. LOVE it! And yes, keep it charged.

    Wingstone, have you considered Marans for your meat birds? I've read that their meat has a different (supposedly better) taste. I haven't noticed, but my son says it's true.

    One of the goats figured out how to get loose today.. Watched my 9 yr old DD catch her up, struggle to carry the little pudge ball up the hill and then awkwardly dump her inside the fence. DD had hardly turned back around and little Miss SmartiePants goat was already back over the fence. Wish I had that on film.
