    My Ideal Poultry shipment arrived on Day 2, but everyone doing great. I did lose one duckling. I placed the order back in December and am so glad they are here. I had to stop looking at BYC pictures of babies. Can not have a incubator, because I would never stop.

    As they arrived....

    ohhhhhhhhhhh how cute.

    Mine are shipping on Monday, March 3rd. I am praying for a March 4th arrival. I have already been
    to the post office 2 times to tell them please call as soon as they arrive. The postal employees are laughing at me for coming by daily to remind them.
    I laughed with them. Told them it is like expecting that first baby any day now and calling the Dr every 15 minutes when you have a twinge.

    Let me just say.....

    All the people who said "Ducks are cute and fun" You were right.

    All those of you who are thinking about getting a couple of ducks. GO FOR IT. The three in this shipment have lots of energy, they are cute and I can not wait to see the adults they become.

    And I got an extra bantam. It is white and has feathers on its legs, so it may be a white cochin bantam or a white frizzle cochin bantam. Yippee!
