    Adam,

    Don't you restrict sales around this time of year because of shipping issues? If so, what are those dates?

    I had an exchange with him after I asked about this. Looks like the cutoff is this coming Tuesday (18th) so you are probably getting one of the last shipments of the year.

    My goodies arrive.... TOMORROW! ;Woot;Woot;Woot

    Yes i do. next Tuesday is my official cut off. I have had a trove of issues and delays while shipping the week or two before X mas. But it was when I was told " sorry, the plane was full" as to why a number of boxes were stuck for an extra day, many years ago, that I finally started wising up about shipping during then holidays. So far they have been good this year, but i don't like to push it. If anything, they could use a break. Its a circus for those guys the next couple weeks believe me.

    Yeah I generally avoid ordering livestock of any kind from December to the second week in January. Too many possible issues with the glut of holiday packages.

    I'm not sure Adam knows how to put a bad pack together. These things arrived in great shape and look amazing!
