    Some thing with the postal service they got held up some where. The 4th day after being shipped they came. Not a one alive. This stuff happens it just part of life. But it sure is Disappointing .

    Duck creek farms Montana th insurance included when you buy from them . I decided to use its on two pairs of adult gray calls instead. This way i wont have to think about those poor little mini appleyard ducklings.
