    I got my MM order this morning. [​IMG] The post office called at 7am to let me know they were in and I went immediately to pick them up. All 10 were alive and well. I do have 1 tiny female black runner who looked very weak this morning - I thought I would lose her - but she seems better tonight after getting some food in her. She is so much smaller than the rest though...will have to wait and see.

    So I have:
    2 black female runners
    2 blue female runners
    1 black male runner
    1 blue male runner
    and 4 St Run American Buff geese

    I am still waiting for my Holderread order, same breeds- runners and Am buffs - no telling when that will come because I put "any" as far as week of delivery goes. [​IMG]

    Anyway - pics pics pics![​IMG]

    We lost the smallest black runner - I knew she probably wouldn't make it because she was way too small and weak. But everyone else looks like they doubled in size this morning! I can't believe they all fit in that tiny shipping box.[​IMG]

    I wish i could get some ducks but with only .17 acres you can't have much.

    Quote:Oh surely you could have one runner! Just one [​IMG] ........they are dangerously addictive though - I find myself drawn to hatchery sites...must resist urge to click "place order"

    I can't wait to see how the American Buffs feather out. It's a breed I'm very intersted in, simply on looks alone. [​IMG]

    Quote:Yes, me too. I have some on order from Holderread's as well, but I couldn't resist the one's from MM. I'm a sucker.
