    My beautiful ducks from Holderreads got here and they were all seemingly fine at PO, but within less than a half hour at home one of the white runners died. Now they had sent me a bonus white runner, either it was the bonus they added maybe because it was weak, or I must have hurt it when dunking bill in water and food. I am just sick about this I just can't stop crying.. I feel horrible. Just totally horrible.... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I doubt anything you did is why it died. So many times the stress of shipping is just too much on tiny little bodies. [​IMG]

    It is very difficult to lose them when they are so fragile and young. I feel your loss as we just received 28 baby chicks on Monday and 3 of them have died as well. I felt so guilty but everyone on here has been so supportive and its very common. Good luck with yoru other babies!
