    I lost my gosling today and my DH wanted to cheer Me up with some Cochin bantams there was this one lone duckling there It was the last one. He bought 5 bantams that were left and IMG_20180315_200429.jpg IMG_20180315_200429.jpg IMG_20180315_200421.jpg they gave him Freebie.. .( named it that). I'm thinking a mix breed maybe?
    added note the bantams all have died .. Freebie seems to be strong.. We're not buying from tractor supply again !

    All the bantams died in one day? I would definitely be going back there in raising a little tiny stink. At least get the money back.

    The duckling is Hoover Hatchery's version of a Golden 300 Hybrid.
    I'm so sorry to hear about your loss! When buying chicks I always have sav-a-chick probiotics and electrolytes

    You shouldn't have losses like that. Unless they are shipping sick birds but they'd likely look sick in the store.

    Got photos of your set up? How are their droppings?
