    The post office just called and my chicks are in El Paso, which is about 4 hours away! I asked her to go ahead and dispatch them to my local post office, so they should be here tomorrow. I hope I did the right thing. I don't know why they didn't just dispatch them on the truck this morning. Now they'll have to sit at El Paso until the morning truck tomorrow. She said the box said they were to call immediately upon arrival but why would they call from a mid-point? I guess I should be glad they didn't call from Chicago!

    I guess I could go fetch them but 4 hrs over there and 4 hrs back, they won't be in their brooder much quicker than if I let the post office bring them on. They just shipped out yesterday so I hope they'll be okay. [​IMG]

    If they were just shipped out yesterday they should be okay. [​IMG]

    Oh, no! I hope they make it to ya safe and sound. Although, it is very strange that they should call from the dispatch center and not your local post office. Let us know how they are!
