    Make sure your local post office knows you are expecting them and to call you when they get in.....Bring water to the po.....Go ahead and open them there and get that water to them.....They should be good if they arrive tomorrow.

    Get your brooder all set up and warm for them and hopefully they'll arrive in the morning.

    Praying for their safe travel.

    Monday? Geez, its getting late, I can see why you are concerned. I just got some chicks the other day that were hatched on Wednesday and shipped that day and I got them on Friday afternoon around 4:00 pm and they, all 53 were perfectly fine, just very very thirsty and hungry.
    Its good advice to bring water to the post office with you so you can get them started in the car.
    I would definitely call the post office and give them a heads up, maybe they can check on them for you.
    Even without a tracking number they should know where each stop the mail takes and maybe they could possible call and see if there are ducks at one of those ports.
    Maybe you could drive down and get them quicker than if they brought them to you.
    How old were the ducks, were they hatched on Monday?
    I wish you and them the best and they are safe in their travels.

    You need to find out where your distribution center is and call them. The ducklings probably arrived this morning after the truck to your post office left and they are just sitting there waiting until tomorrow.

    If you call them, they are usually open 24-7 and you can go pick them up.

    Did you contact your local post office? They can still trace back their ports and have someone on the look out for a box of "live"ducks.
    You need to contact the distribution center like someone else said, right away! Its awfully late now I wouldn't hold out much hope, those poor things. So sad.
