    Well My chickens were shipped from iowa to pennsylvania in under 24 hours. I was wondering if this is a regular occurance or if this is just luck that they made it over 700 miles in less than 24 hours.

    That's fast shipping! I've ordered chicks from hatcheries and it's always taken 2 or 3 days to get here. Lucky you lol!

    I was surprised when we got the call, luckily we were out and only about 5 mins away and had about 15mins til 5. I was expecting them tomorrow and that's what my grandma, who shipped them, was told to expect. They were all fine, had already eaten all the fruit in there though. I got a swan box.......that thing was huge, I did not expect it to be so big, wish the site showed someone standing next to it or chickens in it. Shipping was 107 though..kind of expensive. They are fine but seem a bit tired, they looked like they needed to lay an egg, but guess they will tomorrow.
    Also, the tester said he tested all males while my silkie mix is clearly a roo lol. And called my Australorp a "self black".
