    We were in Atwoods today...my favorite part of going to the doctor in the "big city" is that we always stop and browse in Atwoods ( a store similiar to tractor supply, only better IMO).
    They had baby bunnies...cute as buttons, but not really interesting to me.
    But I asked the manager if they would be getting chicks in the spring. She said yes, chicks! and guineas! and ducks! and turkeys! No more trying to figure out how to disguise ducks as chickens for me. Still gonna order my brahma chicks by mail; but come spring I'm going to march right into that store and buy myself some ducks and then get home and take my punishment like a ma...errrrr, woman.

    I am buying ducks this spring, too. The ducks all go on sale after Easter at the farm store. You never know what kind of ducks you are getting when you buy Easter ducks but I don't care. I miss duck eggs for baking!

    Well, now that I found out Ideal will ship ducks in the same box with the chickies, I might be ordering ducks from them...to get the breed I want instead of at Atwoods. Then when we go to Atwoods I'll just have to pick out something else I can't live without...hmmmmmm [​IMG]
