    Well, when I called them to tell them I was expecting a chick delivery and left my phone number, I was told they usually will call first thing in the morning/as soon as they get them because they are live and don't want them in their possession for long.

    They were not kidding.

    We got the call at 3:17am, that's right, IN THE MORNING to come get them. :p

    It really depends on when they get the chicks. Do you have a tracking number for them? You could try checking that though it doesn't always update.

    I've read that people get them all different times. Some people get them at 3:00am and some get the call at 9:30 at night.

    You should be able to call your post office and ask them when they normally get their mail delivery.

    It really depends on when they get there. They should call you as soon as they get them.
