    Does the PO deliver them to your house or do you have to pick them up at the po like you do chicks?

    It depends... you can have them delivered like regular mail, or request Hold for Pickup from the seller...your choice.
    It's not like the live chicks that 95% of the time require pickup at the PO.

    When I ordered a bunch of eggs a couple years ago to incubate, they were always delivered to my door.

    No matter what kind of package I have arrive in the mail, My PO makes me pick it up. They do not want to come up my driveway to deliver mail. Go figure!

    Couple Christmases ago I had a friend send me a beautiful glass ornament. It was a clear sphere with a glass butterfly suspended in the middle. My friend knew I would like it because I love butterflies. Well figures that would be the ONE time they deliver a package to my house, but still didn't come up the drive way. My mail carrier TOSSED the box to the ground right next to my mail box. The box hit the post my mail box sits on, and when I opened the box my ornament was shattered. [​IMG]
