    i ordered 30 chicks from Berkly. a month later i still had not received any baby's so i called. they said they would be shipped next day. week went by no baby well at this time i was upset so i called talked to the boss .again he got on the phone said he had them in the mail next day. i received 10 chicks OK only ten waited next day none .called and the boss said the rest would be next day. next day only 7 came so i called said some ugly words. thats where i went wrong !don't upset the boss. because for two weeks i received chicks in shipments of about ten .i got the first ten then 7 then 13 then 10 every other day for two weeks. when it was clear that i was starting to look like a old star trek episode trouble with trebles and they just kept coming i called. this time i put on my church shoes and was real nice. he said and i quote we don't show any shipments Mr sellers. so told him well that the most nothing i ever got in the mail. i thought it was finally over. no sadly to say still more. Sunday morning my brother in-law god bless his hilarious sole said the post office called. said they had more chickens . OK this has got be William messing with me. i called lord be with me it was true. so that brings me up to 80 chicks. bet that boss man was saying YOU WANT CHICKENS ILL GIVE YOU CHICKENS. and i swear i called Monday morning to tell the boss man about number 80. i heard him say a cuss word and then said there was a shipment of 30 going out the next day but he got that stopped maybe still gun shy :eek::eek:

    [​IMG] 80 !!!!!!!! Holy cow!
    Gotta tell ya its pretty funny though:lau
    There are alot of people on this board who dream of that happening to them.
    That is alot of chicks, they get big so fast too. I hope you have the room for them, I know you certainly weren't planning on that many.
    You could probably sell the extras or give them away.
    What kind are they?

    I'd make sure they didn't charge you for all of those shipping charges:( Write a letter to the company and tell them what happened and how put out you are, wether you are or not. You never should have had to wait that long and then get that much too many.
