    Mcmurray Hatchery shipped my 25 brown egg layers and 10 EE's On Wednesday. I was expecting a call from the post office early this AM but got nothing.

    I called and the post office asked for an express #, would Mcmurray give that to me if I called? Please tell me all hope is not lost I cant imagine my babies not getting her OK!!

    Quote:i believe mcmurray ships priority, not express, so they probably don't have a tracking number to give you. priority is 2-3 days, so if they're not to your local PO by saturday, you might have to call the hatchery or your nearest sorting center. good luck!

    Did you confirm with McMurray that the chicks truly shipped on Wednesday? The hatchery we work with sometimes must ship the day after hatch due to high volumes of orders, so birds hatched on Monday sometimes are shipped on Tuesday morning.

    I called McMurray and they said I should expect them Saturday AM. The post office said the truck comes in at 4:30 - 5am so I would hear from them By 6am. Im not going to sleep tonight worrying about them.

    When I called McMurray they said that if there were any DOAs to call them by Monday morning. The CSR didnt seem to concerned about the babies, so maybe its just me. Ive never ordered chicks before so Im not used to the waiting!!!
