    We ordered 6 runner ducklings from Ideal Poultry. They were set to hatch yesterday but they hatched Tuesday (5th) and were shipped out then. We got the 'call' this morning at 7 am and I loaded up the 3 children (5, 2 & 5 month old) to pick up our new babies. I knew they (Ideal) would be adding chicks for warmth but boy was I ever surprised (and tickled) to see they had including 16 (RIR?) chicks + an extra fawn/white runner!!!

    So I am the happy new duck/chick mommy to 7 runners + 16 chicks!!! [​IMG]

    What do you all think about the breed of the chicks?

    Congrats MOMMY!! They are all so cute! My 5 week old Indian Runner is sitting in my lap right now (she comes to the office with me most days). I love her, she is so loyal and better than any dog I have ever had. I am considering getting one more runner so they can play. Please keep posting PICS!!!
