We ordered ducklings from Metzer Farms. They were shipped Monday. It's now Friday and they've still not arrived. We're really stressed about it. I'm assuming there is no way they are going to survive. I'm worried they won't be there tomorrow even. I'm stressed about getting a box full of dead or dying ducklings. This was primarily for my 8 yo daughter's birthday. She spent a lot of time picking out which she wanted. It's one thing to need to butcher an animal. It's another thing entirely spending days knowing that there is a box out there with your ducklings stressed and slowly dying in it. Has anyone had this happen before? We've been ordering poultry for 14 years now and I have NEVER had a shipment arrive late at all let alone this late. I'm sure it's the post office's fault. But I'm afraid to have it happen again. Metzer told us a lot of people had called Wednesday wondering where their ducks were. How does the post office manage to lose multiple boxes of ducklings?? How long can they possibly even survive in the mail? Any suggestions for immediate treatment or care to help revive any who might still be alive? Thanks!
