    I'm due to get chicks from Cackle Hatchery on June 9th, my DD's 14th b-day. Please, please tell me that the chicks will be okay?! I'm very nervous and if they don't arrive safely, my DD is going to be so very upset! I don't want her to remember her 14th b-day as the day that chicks arrived dead! I'm so wishing I wouldn't have accepted the 9th as an arrival date.[​IMG][​IMG]

    I know what you mean. I sure hope they all arrive safe and sound.

    Does she know they're due to arrive the 9th? If at all possible, I would try to pick them up without her around, so that you can check them and removed any that didn't make it. Then let her open the box once you've pre-checked it.

    I soo agree w/ Laurajean. No need for children to get the gory details just yet. Have someone intercept the chicks. Lessons can be learned on another day. Happy B=day to your DD [​IMG]

    Thanks for the b-day wished![​IMG]

    I just called Cackle and although they were, in fact, shipped yesterday that they may not arrive until....Thursday![​IMG] I feel sick! I'm not going to be home Thursday. Oye! I would have gone by myself to get them, though. I have a friend that will pick them up Thurs, but that's 3 days in shipping![​IMG]

    Gee thanks for the support.

    My PO says my chicks have not arrived and there is almost no possibility that they'll arrive this afternoon. I cried.

Good luck!!!!! Happy b day to the kid!
