    Ten extras !! Wow...I guess its kind of nice......Ordering 5 and getting 15 would have been a surprise. But not for someone who cant keep them all. Are you able to keep them all or will you have to find hoomes for the extras????

    When you order ducklings, are the packing peanuts ducks or chickens?
