    Does anyone know if My Pet Chicken sends an e-mail confirmation when they ship. They were supposed to ship yesterday, but I haven't heard anything else.

    thanks

    I would call them to verify. Never used them but i understand that some hatcheries only notify you if there is a variation on the date. Enjoy your new fuzzybutts.

    They did NOT call me with shipping confirmation for me, but the peeping box arrived the day after their ship date!

    Mine were supposed to ship yesterday also. On the order confirmation it said not to call until Thursday if they haven't come by then. A little worried, it is cold, rainy, blowing about 40 mph and they have to come over on a small passenger only mailboat from the mainland. Do you think they come from Meyer in Ohio as I thought I heard that they did?

    I called Meyer this morning. They did all the shipping yesterday but it all went out late. Dawn said it most likely would not show up today. Maybe Wends or THurs [​IMG] I hate this waiting. Hey...so were you going to tell us about the birds and the bees? [​IMG]

    I got peeps from MPC last year and I don't remember a phone call but I waited patiently for FOUR days! Needless to say I had a sebright that was dead and another peep that died shortly after. Be ready and let the post office know your home and cell number so they can call as soon as they hear a peeping box!

    Quote:[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Guess I can turn off the heat in the temp brooder and turn down the heat in my office. [​IMG] [​IMG] Seems so sad to look over at the empty brooder with it's little dishes of food and water just waiting.

    Oh and I don't get my bees today either. the queen failed so my firend has to start all over making me an extra hive.

    No birds, no bees and my honey is out of town so no nothin'.......................I need chocoloate.

    Man, you have got it bad.
    Chin up little camper. Hopefully they will be here in the morning.
    Gives me time to get a red light. Thought I already had one but set up the brooder last night and found out I didn't. I want to get a better feeder too. The one I have keeps tipping over.
