    I just put my order in to day. I will be getting 25 but only want 12. I might auction the ones I dont want. Ill wait till there older though. My pet snake might eat a couple. Probly not . I get attached to them fast.For shipping safly is why they wanted me to order 25. What kind are you getting? How many? Scotty

    I just looked at Ideal and some stuff is already sold out till March. I may end up ordering soon so I can get what I want but of coarse I will still hatch some to. I want to order 20 more ducks since ideal has them for $1.60 but hubby says we dont have the room.
