    I've never ordered from MMH before, except for the ducks I just got, I mostly hatched my own. I have an order of chicks that are suppose to come tomorrow and I was just wondering it they ship them out on saturday, and if they usually come the next day? I'm just a worried expecting parent [​IMG]

    They ship them out on Sunday, and I got mine Sunday. It just depends on the route they have to take to get to you. I got mine fast, because Denver is a major hub.

    The person I ordered with from them says hers almost always come on a Sunday. She's in Willington CT for what that's worth!

    Yup, my friend says they call her on Sunday. There are still employees there sorting etc. They just don't make deliveries. (Otherwise my friend would ask them to deliver our chicks to church lol!)

    They actually ship out on Saturday. They have trucks haul them up to MPLS international airport and they are shipped to their destinations from there. I am not sure about ones that are trucked though. I asked the gal and she said most are sent through Mpls.
