The missing chicks arrived this morning (at MY post office this time). As expected, there were a few dead in the box, and several more that looked extremely weak. About half of them still look quite vigorous. They're all under the heat lamps with food and water now. We'll know in the next 24 hours which ones will rebound and which ones will tank. The survivors from the first shipment look great, and are already nearly twice as big as the newcomers after only a week! I'll post pictures once the dust settles.


  1. Wow...just unbelievable. I guess it's good that they finally got there, but that is like 4 days shipping, right?

    Hope they all end up doing okay!

  2. I used to love going to the post office with my kids when they had baby chicks to deliver. We would sneak in and peak in the cracks to look at those little beaks!!
