I ordered 15 chicks - 5 each of Australorp, Oprington and Barred Rock to meet the minimum - from Meyers last month. February 17 was the first available shipping date and with the weather being decently mild for winter (and my impatience), I chose that date. I think it was 54 degrees the day I ordered and I foolishly felt "springy". Now they're 2 days away from shipping, the weather when shipped will be below zero between Ohio and Kentucky, there's a winter storm warning of 6-12 inches starting tonight, and my impatience has turned into dread/fear. Do they know what they're doing with shipping at the hatchery, or do I use my common sense to think there is no way they can survive given the weather and road conditions? I hate to lose the money (policy is no cancellations 2 weeks before hatch?) but there could absolutely not have been a worse time for shipping to this area and I will be kicking myself for weeks for the choice of dates if they suffer for it.
