    OMG [​IMG] I can't take this anymore. [​IMG] All the live shipments get to my post office before 7a.m. My chicks are still not here. They shipped on Monday. This is going to kill me.

    My Meyer chicks shipped on Monday and arrived at 7:30 in the evening on Wednesday. The P.O. people told me they almost always came around 11 a.m., so I basically gave them up for lost. Then they called me after supper, and the chicks had made it okay. Keep your chin up!

    My babies came from Ideal in TX to SE,Louisiana sent out on Monday and got to the city PO at around 2:00p on Wed. could not reach me. My PO(Pearl River) picked them up and I got them from there and it was not in the am. So there is still some hope. Yeah it also made me a nervous wreck.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Quote:You're a life saver. I saw what you said and called them back. Now they tell me that sometimes they get shipments at noon.[​IMG]
    So maybe there is hope. If they don't come in today then it will have been 3 days.
    And that equals 3 years in "waiting for my chicks" time...[​IMG]

    If my shipment doesn't come from Meyer today my receptionist will (seriously) start crying. She knows I'm getting itty bitty bantams and they are not as tough as the big standards. I always have to open the box and make sure everyoen is alright before she can see them.

    Of course if it doens' tcome today I may start crying too. [​IMG]

    Yup, got a whole office of folks that are getting sick of me just pacing around waiting for the phone to ring. I'm not even in the mood to use a cute icon anymore....

    I called the post office, no babies, all the shipments are in. Guess I better bring a plastic bag for the deaders tomorrow if they arrive then. Going to cry over baby birds I've never even seen. [​IMG]
