    So frustrated this evening, we were to receive baby chicks in the mail today sweet little orps and USPS has no idea where they are... Really? I only imagine what those babies are going through. I pray they will reach us and I pray they are ok when they do. So frustrated!

    Were they sent from a hatchery or a private breeder?

    Oh no! I know how you feel. When did they ship and from how far away from you??
    I think the term 'tough chick' really is true sometimes. They can take a lot of stress; more
    than we can imagine. I'll be thinking of you and them... please keep us posted [​IMG]

    They were sent from a private breeder Lav Orps. they were last posted in MO, I am in FL but they were guaranteed by 3:00 today express mail. I am sure they would have been ok, but Monday evening they were last tracked in MO and it doesn't show them leaving there at all. Florida says that they have not come into FL anywhere. Hoping for the best.
