    Call the post office in advance, maybe bring them a 12 pack of soda and a big bag of M&Ms, make sure they remember you - then give them your name, phone number, & alternate phone number in case they can't get a hold of you. I've heard most people get the phone call around 10:00-10:30am, but some people have reported as early as 5:30am. I know how excited you are! Good luck and best wishes, pls post pics once they arrive!

    I got my call at 5:30am from my post office when my MPC order came in on July 20th. I had 15 chicks delivered and so far all 15 are very active and healthy... I was just so happy that there haven't been any losses. My next delivery of six chicks from MPS is due the week of the 16th also; so it looks like we may be getting babies at the same time [​IMG]
