    They are white leghorns. They are quite the little peepers.
    Thank you everyone.
    The 3rd duckling is still alive.
    The poor thing is hanging on. My husband and I have been taking turns laying him on our chest. If he is gonna go we want to atleast bring him some comfort. I keep giving him water. He will drink but won't eat.

    Update: our little ducking made it through the night and is looking better. His head in no longer drooping and he is all fluffed up. He ate some mash and is drinking on his own too.
    The chicks are still doing good too.

    March 23rd. We got the invoice last night. I have read some bad reviews about cackle hatchery blaming people when things like these happen, but they have been really nice about the whole thing. They didn't even charge us the shipping costs. I am just praying that the next batch will have no problems.
    How long should we keep (quarantine) the new ducklings away from everyone when they get here?

    Oh and we are thinking of naming him Rocky since he is such a fighter.

    And my son is feeling a lot better too!

    Thank you again everyone. Your kindness brings tears to my eyes!
