    when my ag teacher orded chicks for those who were buying, not one of the 22 died. they were shipped from texas to FL, breed chocies were americuanas, australorps,sultans(actually polish),silkies,cochins, and frizzle cochins. was it luck that none have died? i know its only been a week, and one ALMOST died untill i saved it ( thread : i saved a chick this morning, something like that i forgot what i named the thread i think it was that...)but.. there all healthy and stuff. so is it luck?

    If it's luck, then I'm a lucky guy. Never had one arrive belly up during their trip from Texas to the Northeast.
