Hello everyone and thank you all for the help you have been giving me every time I have a question. I ordered a few baby chicks from Meyer Hatchery mid April and they were shipped yesterday. In the morning they advised me that they had a problem with one of the breed I ordered and asked if I wanted to substitute with something else and pay the difference. I said no as I was really disappointed that they didn’t have the Appenzeller Spitzhauben which I was looking forward to the most. The CS rep suggested to place the order very early next year to ensure delivery to which I did remind her that this order was placed in April-5 months ago. What annoyed me a bit is that I should have been given the option of substitution without having to pay extra. I want to send them an email telling them how I feel. Is it petty and whining on my side or is this the norm for the chicken business? I haven’t received the chicks yet and I ‘ll go to the Post Office shortly to make sure they’re not laying around there being ignored.
