I called 6 days from the scheduled shipping date to let the staff know they were expected on X-date/day. I left my name, address and phone#. I then called again 24 hours after ship date to inquire/remind them of my request. They remembered me! (by address, not name

The Post Office should call you to say they have arrived and come get them. Depending how far they travel, it should be Friday morning (maybe even Thursday) when you get the call. If they have not called by the middle of Friday, I would call them and ask. It couldn't hurt to call ahead of time and let them know to expect the chicks, I do that.

we already have 25 chickens mostly different breeds. i am addicted to chickens. the fact that they lay eggs is just an added benefit, i just think they are a hoot. we started with 5 GLW that were a week old last may and the rest we picked up at chicken shows or on CL.
