    Received my email last night that they had shipped. Received call from Post Office this morning that they were there. From the west coast to the east coast in less than 24 hours. Awesome.

    I love the hand written note inside the box.

    As they arrived

    5 Welsh Harlequin

    5 + 1 Extra Assorted Runners

    Very healthy, happy and getting used to their brooder right now.

    Looks like the sex ratio worked out in your favor with the Harlequins! I think I see three girls and two boys?

    And the Runners are to die for! I'm going to hazard a guess on the colors - 2 black, 2 blue, a buff (or maybe Fawn & White?), and an emery penciled? [​IMG]

    Congrats! The Deluxe Runner Assortment was my alternate choice (although I'm very happy with my Hookbills and Stanbridge Whites)! [​IMG]

    I am keep these to breed for next year.

    I definately think I have 2 pair of Harlequins. So if I have an extra boy or girl, I am happy.

    As for the runners, I think you are correct 2 Black, 2 Blue, 1 Pencil. The other I am thinking is either white or fawn/white.

    I love baby ducks and am really happy to have Holderread birds.

    This is a 100 gallon stock tank that I use for the first couple of weeks. I have it on a slant so any water they spill flows to one end and is easier to keep clean. They are on a while feed sack that will be replaced with shavings tomorrow or the next day. I change their water several times a day, but if you have ducks, you know they are fast at making their water a mess.
