After being gone for three days visiting family, we were very upset tonight (Monday night) to listen to a message on our machine. It was a post office from over an hour away telling us our 80 baby chicks were sitting there and if we didn't pick them up (this was Saturday) we would not be able to get them at our local post office until Tuesday since Mon. was Memorial Day. We knew that they would be coming but not on Saturday! We ordered from Murray McMurray and they said chicks come on either Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday. I don't know why they even mention Sunday because we have to pick them up at the post office. We knew the mail does not go on Memorial Day either so we figured they wouldn't be sent out until Tuesday. Who would send out chicks that would sit for two days at the post office? Guess we were wrong. Now I feel so bad for going out of town and not being here for the call but first they were not supposed to be shipped that early and second they weren't even at our post office. I just feel so bad for the chicks and am wondering if they are even alive. With the long weekend why would have they sent them when they did? If they don't make it will we be refunded? I'm so upset and so scared to go to the post office tomorrow to see the condition of the chicks. Just had to vent my frustration! Wether the chicks are ok or not, I plan on calling McMurray and asking why in the heck they sent them when the did.
