I am so excited and almost a nervous wreck already. The runner ducklings I ordered from Metzer Farms shipped today. I have one male fawn & white, and 4 females, fawn/white, blue, black, chocolate and 5 assorted straight run ducklings coming. I am nervous since they are coming from CA and I'm in FL but from everything I heard about Metzer they have an excellent survivial rate. I figure I will sell the extras after a week or two and I know that everyone is doing well. Plus, it was cheaper to get the extra 5 than to pay the small order charge.
I have just put my 5 week old chicks outside so now I have made room for the ducklings in the spare bedroom. I'm plannning on keeping them in a kiddie pool with appropriate bedding at first. I went to TSC and got starter that was okay for both chicks and ducks, 20% protein. Everything is ready and waiting.
Unfortunately, I forgot about Columbus Day when I ordered so instead of shipping yesterday like I thought, they shipped today. Luckily I'm off the rest of the week.
I can't wait until they get here. I'm planning on calling the 2 local post offices tomorrow, as I'm not sure which is officially mine and I want to be sure that they are keeping an eye out for them.
Ahhhh! I'm sooooo excited!
