    I ordered three baby chicks from Meyer hatchery, and i'm hoping they will be here tomorrow morning. The estimate they gave me is Tuesday(tomorrow)-Thursday. Anyone ordered from them and/or live near NC?

    When they estimate a shipping day, they usually give you a 2 to 4 day window because they're not exactly sure what day the chicks will end up hatching. If the chicks hatched on Monday, then they'll ship them out immediately and you would get them in 1 to 2 days, so tuesday or wednesday. If they hatch on wednesday, you'll get them thurs or friday.

    I've ordered from My Pet Chicken several times, and they use many different hatcheries, Meyer being one of them. I just ordered from them about an hour ago, so I'm expecting mine around the 27th, but it could be the 29th. So far, they're pretty accurate when they will hatch, so it'll pobably be tomorrow or wednesday.

    I can't wait for my new babies...it never gets old.
