    I had a missed call this morning and there was a voicemail...I listened to the voicemail and it was the post office saying my ducklings had arrived from Holderreads!!!! After working hard for the money for them and waiting for over 5 months I finally got my babies! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I was sooo excited to pick up my ducklings! My bf was laughing at me [​IMG] They were so cute when they were in the box...they kept nibbling on my fingers and sticking their heads out of the box...I sat in the post office parking lot for a little while so I could play with them a little bit lol

    They sent 22 ducklings in total. 20 welsh harlequins and 2 extras (which I think are khaki campbells). Out of the 22 one arrived dead. It was a welsh harlequin male. you can see him in the lower left hand side of the first pic. There are 14 males (-1 male so 13 males) and 6 females...o and disregard the date on the pics...the camera is 2 days behind...

    Well, they're cute as a button! Congtatulations! I was wondering (I'm a chicken person), are you raising ducks for eggs then too?

    I'm confused, I thought the girls had the pinky colored bills and the boys had the dark bills as ducklings?? no, ?? been trying to sex my ducklings and thought I had boys, now I'm not sure.
