    When it's the guy at the Post Office calling to tell you "The chicks are here!"

    I drove there yesterday afternoon and told them to call me the minute the little guys and gals arrived. He said, "even 2 am?" and I said "Absolutely!"

    My 4H dd and I jumped into some clothes and had our babies back home and in the brooder before 3:30 [​IMG]

    Woohoo for the P.O.! It's great that they followed your request, allowing you to get those little peeps somewhere safe, warm, and dry with water, etc at the earliest time possible. [​IMG]

    We got 10 little polish babies. They are all bright eyed and bushy tailed, grooming, eating, pooping and doing awesome!

    It helps to take some homemade goodies with you to the PO when you are asking them to call you [​IMG] It used to be cookies, but sinced I learned to can last year, the bribe of choice is now homemade jelly [​IMG]
