    I can't believe I just ordered my Baby Runners and like a kid in the grociery line...I impulse bought a crested Khaki Campbell! Now to see when they will arive! I ordered all females and in the after note on the orderform, it stated that if your order a small number of ducklings, they may add males in for warmth and comfort during shipping! So It will be interesting to see what kind and how many they end up adding in! Eeeeeek! It stated they dont identify the breed type of the added males! Oh My! Wish me luck, I will post an update when they arrive! So nervous now!

    usually when they add males for warmth it is male chickens.
    not ducks.
    but maybe you will get lucky

    Oh...and I ordered from Ideal in Texas. I'm quite nervous as I have never ordered from a shipping place so I hope they do okay and aren't traumatized by the scary trip...but its the only place that has the crested runners and khakis...

    Omg...I love that you called them packing peanuts! I called them and they said that infact it would be boy chicks! I wouldn't know the first thing to do with them so I oppted for the insurance...I just hope they do alright...They are set to hatch out on the 26th. How long did it take for you to get your babies? I hate to think of them starting out in a dark scarey box...but hoping that they fall in love with me when they arrive. What are you going to do with your packing peanuts? Just curious!
