    So I was all excited because my babies were supposed to here next Tues-Thurs...but then I checked my order status yesterday morning and the delivery date had changed from April 17-19 to May 1-3.
    Called Meyer's and they said they had just posted that update about 10 mins before I called.
    Apparently their Mama ducks aren't cooperating with the laying schedule :barnie

    I am sooo ready for those little ones to arrive! Especially since I'm "grounded" from getting any more animals so they will be my last for awhile. Hubs says I have enough :lau

    3 1/2 horses, 2 cats, 10 chickens, 8 ducks (eventually), 3 dogs (one isn't ours).

    Since I already know the sexes of my ordered ducklings I guess I'll decide on names-I know 2 of them already, maybe; I'm still working on it lol.

    I have a list of names picked out for the 3 ducks I already have but I'm waiting for them to tell me if they're ducks or drakes :idunno

    Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!

    I have plenty to keep me busy until then and I know the ducks run this show but darnit I hate waiting. Do you already have ducks or are these your first?

    I totally misread that...you said chicks but I had ducks on my mind lol. What kind of chicks are you getting?
