    to mrsengeseth please hope with us that they have a safe journey!!! [​IMG] I'm a nervous mama hen over here and they haven't even left my air conditioned PO yet [​IMG] I'm most concerned about the handlers keeping them cool, as it's so hot up this way lately. So please keep these cuties in your thoughts. mrsengeseth and her daughter need to have a positive shipment this time around!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    wooohoo i see that CO is cooler MUCh cooler than PA so that's good to know they will be going into cooler weather than hotter. I shoulda known it IS CO after all! [​IMG] I can't wait until I start seeing tracking updates so far chicks are still at the PO so no tracking info yet... blah blah blah... welp gotta go be stressed while we wash and wax our jeep... be thinking of the chickies (coturnix quails all 17 of em).
