    I called Holderreads and talked to Millie to make sure I wasnt wasting my time mailing in my order and she said they shouldnt have a problem filling my order! [​IMG] I am ordering 5 silver welsh harlequins and 5 rare duckling assortments [​IMG] I also mailed in an order to Sand Hill for more welsh harlequins, 2 blue pearl runners, 2 grey runners and 2 buff runners.

    I will have a good mix of lines and cant wait to hatch out eggs next year!

    My Holderread's order is due to ship out next week. I ordered back in January for an April shipment. Saxonies, Indian Runners and Australian Spotteds. Hopefully I will be able to breed my own next year. I love my chickens but ducks are just so cool. And messy. [​IMG]

    I hear you. I have three brooders going now. One in the basement and two in the kitchen. So with the ducks there will be three kitchen brooders and I might be getting some turkey poults next Friday just to add more to the chaos. Good thing I am already insane [​IMG]

    Hopefully mine will be here next week to. I ordered 10 Indian Runners from Holderreads. Mine were due to ship out on the 11th with the 18th and 25th as alternate dates. They weren't shipped on the11th so I hope they will be the 18th. I don't like the uncertainty of shipping dates but I have to wait.

    Mine arrived today. [​IMG]

    I ended up with 6 Saxonys (+ 1 bonus)
    5 Australian Spotteds
    6 Indian Runners (Exhibition Asst.)
    1 Fawn and White
    1 Penciled
    1 Black
    3 White

    They are all very active and zooming about the brooder. Within the first 1/2 hour they sucked up the the water and the greens I had for them. And they have only been home for one hour. If they ever settle down I'll try and get some pictures.
