A few weeks ago, we received our first batch of chickens. The USPS is the only service that will ship chicks. Since Vernon is such a small town, we receive our mail through a PO Box rather than delivery to our home. Normally, the post office will call when the chicks have arrived and then we drive down and pick them up. However, since the person who picks up the mail and brings it to the Vernon post office is our neighbor, she decided just to swing them by the house. She figured that since I was at work and Hollie was at home with the kids that it would be easier for her to drop them off than for Hollie to load up the kids and drive to the post office. We really appreciated her kind and thoughtful gesture.
