Last week, chicks I ordered from Meyer hatchery were shipped on Wednesday, and arrived to me on Saturday. Unfortunately, they arrived DOA. I knew things weren't good when I was called two hours before the post office opened with the post master sounding very worried. A new shipment of chicks went in the mail yesterday, and the USPS track and confirm (we all know it lies about the tracking part, hah) says they will arrive on Thursday. They will spend the same amount of time in the mail if that is accurate, so I am concerned I will get another box of dead chicks, it is so sad to think that their only days of life were miserable. I was hoping that since the hatchery is only a state away, they'd have less time in transit, but apparently this isn't the case? I know it isn't the hatchery's fault, and it seems the USPS is getting less and less reliable.
