    Got email my chicks shipped yesterday from Iowa. USPS just updated their site and says expected delivery of Friday.

    I know I live in a remote area, but hoping the survival rate will be decent for a 4day trip.
    (My first time ordering from a hatchery, always bought local before)

    Anyways, hoping I'll get a call tomorrow, but really doubt it

    Got them this morning. Got all drinking good for a few hours, then pit crumbles in and they went to town.
    Ordered 25, received 26. So far, so good
