    Since I got 2 ducklings in a surprise box a few months ago, I've fallen in love and decided to cut down my chicken flock and get more ducks. Well today they arrived!

    I ordered 15, planning on cutting it down to a nice flock of 8-10 by fall. They sent 21!!

    There are:
    3 female Welsh halequin
    2 female Rouen
    2 female fawn & white runners
    1 female Cayuga
    3 female Ancona
    And I ordered 4 surplus, they sent 10!

    Oh boy...

    Starving. They attacked the feed after making a mess with the water.

    I'm going to get better pictures when I get back home. I work at the post office, but knowing they would be here this morning, I went in and brought them home before work.
