    My chicks got into Birmingham at 6:37 am this morning and nobody seems to know where they are!!!! I've been calling around all day and waiting on someone to call me back. I thought when I was told they got there this morning 'whew! this may not be bad at all'. But here it is 3:00 pm and no chickies. I wanna cry. I know they're stressed out on some truck somewhere. Poor babies! And the PO closes at 4:30. Waahhhhh! The guy at my local PO was so nice when I went in yesterday to let them know they were coming and give them a number to call me. He called me this morning and said he talked to the dock supervisor in Birmingham and they were in. The guy was supposed to call him and let him know where I could pick them up so they wouldn't have to wait. And I've been waiting and bugging the poor guy ever since.
