    [​IMG] Just pick up my order from McMurry all dead [​IMG] I've never had this happen before and i've gotten chicks in colder weather, mine wasn't the only box, 4 came to the PO 2 of the others all dead, one box had about 5 left alive, they weren't pack right all the holes were open and a thin piece of card board around the out side. I pick them up as soon as the PO called, I go to the main PO to get them and I don't wait till they arrive at my PO, if I did they wouldn't be there till tomorrow. I just can't believe there all dead [​IMG]

    Maybe it's just too early to order by mail. IA is quite cold. I prefer the farm stores.

    Do you live near a co op that sells babies?

    Sorry for your loss.

    Very sorry, I am waiting for an order from MM myself and this kind of stuff makes me a nervous wreck. Once again I am sorry for you.
