Due to the east coast storm, McMurray Hatchery is covered up in chicks and assorted birds. Nows your chance to stock up! i have ordered from them before and they are good people. Chicks shipped to me last year in the middle of a winter blast all died and they reimbursed me 100%. It was sad but they learned and I learned.

I went to their website but didn't see anything about a sale. How did you find out? Did you get an email from them?

I, too, got the email about day-old chicks being available. They aren't on sale; they are just available, where before they weren't. The chicks were all spoken for--they just can't mail them out, so they're offering them so they can move them before they're too old to ship. The chicks absorb the yolk into their stomachs right before they hatch. That way, the yolk feeds them while they are in transit. After that, they would probably arrive dead of starvation and lack of water. I figured MM Hatchery would put them on sale, but I know they are hoping to get full price for them. What a blow to their profits if they can't sell all these chicks that were already promised to folks on the East Coast! We have always been happy with MMHatchery!

Shipping anywhere this time of year is risky. And unfortunately, if they can't be sent out, they are destroyed. I understood that all their shipments leave the post office wear house in Michigan. So even if they are headed south, they go there first. I lost 24 in transit 2,years ago in March, due to extreme cold. I will never pre-order again.

claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
