    cheapchicks They are adorable I see you ordered ducklings. Who did you order from. We ordered from Cackle but fthey won't be shipped until the 13. I hope they donb't include any peanuts in our order. I really don't have a setup where I can put baby chicks. My chickens are 1 year old. Oh well we'll just have to see. Hopefully we ordered a large enough order that they don't have to put in any extras. Micki

    I ordered 3 Magpie Ducklings from Ideal. They appear to be quite healthy and happy. Already tried swimming. They have eaten and drank alot of water. (peanuts too !)

    Critter Crazy,

    I honestly do not know. I also do not plan to keep them. Maybe rude neighbor will want them? They were extras to keep duckies warm.

    The ones with the white spots on their heads definitely look like barred rocks, I've ordered barred rocks in the past and that is what they've looked like.
