    My guess would be the main airport hub is the big airport at Minneapolis/St Paul (MSP). This would actually be a good thing as they will probably fly out soon. I am guess FedEx (maybe) is delivering them?

    The first line (bottom up) shows that the shipping label was created on 2/03.
    The seconed line (top) shows the post office accepted the package for shipping on 2/04.

    One of the previous posters are correct. The main shipping hub is in St. Paul. I'm in Wisconsin and everything we order goes through St.Paul first.

    i'm in texas & my chicks are with 'ilovemydog''s chicks. i sure hope they have a fair chance at survival. i'm a nervous wreck worrrying about these little beasties. when they get here, they better behave & no funny stuff - just grow up happy & healthy.
