I submitted an online order to Welp yesterday. They had several of the breeds we wanted and most other hatcheries are out of almost everything. My chicks are supposed to mail next Wednesday. Has anyone done business with Welp, and were you happy with them & their chicks? ETA: Guess I should have read more earlier. Welp not only ships from Iowa, they also hatch and ship from Minnesota and New Mexico. Sometimes from more than one location depending on the breeds ordered. A call to Welp was made and they're very helpful. She checked my order and all of my breeds are coming from New Mexico. Okay, great. Welp hatches and ships on Wednesday, can't say I'm thrilled with that, but okay. Now the question is, will these chicks arrive by Friday? The call to the post office. If only we could find someone with a brain. Now granted, we live in the sticks, but still. The little post office where our mail comes from = nobody there after 3:00 pm on Friday. One driver comes in on Saturday and drives the delivery route. So we asked what city the chicks would go through to be sorted onto trucks. Nearest major city = 60 miles. More than happy to drive it if it would save the chicks several hours in a box. NO... post office will not allow this. So now I can just sit and wait until NEXT Friday and hope they arrive safe and sound.
