I ask the employees there and they had no idea what any of them were. I thought these were the cutest little things ever!

They are precious!  Now, have you read the Raising Ducklings sticky?  And you have them set up with food and water 24/7 and have their brooder at the proper temperature?  If they are less than two weeks old, probably around 85F.  I kept a thermometer (not mercury, but a spring thermometer) in the brooder so I'd be sure of the temperature.

 

What kind of bedding are you using?

Pine shaving is good as long as they aren't small enough for the ducklings to eat them. usually first week until they know what their feed looks like I keep mine on old clean towels. they are easy to take out shake and wash and reuse.  Adorable ducklings Congrats!!,
