Thousands of Chicks Arrive Dead to Maine Farmers Amid Postal Service Cutbacks

The U.S. Postal Service delays caused thousands of chicks to arrive dead at Maine farms.

Nearly 5,000 dead chicks have arrived at Maine farms because of a recent series of cuts to the U.S. Postal Service, according to congresswoman Chellie Pingree.

Pingree, a Democratic representative from Maine, raised the issue and the losses farmers are facing in a letter to Postmaster General Louis DeJoy and U.S. Department of Agriculture Commissioner Sonny Perdue, The Portland Press Herald reported.
