    So I just placed an order for 3 female ducks since I ended up with 2 males and a very little female on my last pick. I have one crested duck now and I think he is the cutest thing ever. Yes I know of the problems they have but I had to have more. I ordered 1 female crested Pekin, 1 female crested Magpie and 1 female crested Cayuga. Hope they all arrive safe and sound. I have a question though. It says they ship male chicks for warmth? Do they do this often and what are my chances of this happening to my order?

    the first time I ordered 3 snowy mallards and 2 cayugas. received 2 cayugas, 3 snowy mallards DOA and 10+ packing peanuts. Second time I ordered 6 snowy mallards and received 5, 3 DOA and 2 survived. I have given up ordering from them and will be getting hatching eggs for snowy mallards next time.
