Hello!
Thanks to the help from you all my day-olds arrive in one week!
Was wondering if anyone had any tips on the first few days with new ducklings? Also, when they arrive should I cuddle then right away :) or wait a bit due to shipping being stressful?
I cannot wait!
Thanks!

Congrats on new babies! When they first get in the first thing you need to do is get them in the brooder and let them warm up and eat and drink for a few hours since they will be very hungry and thirsty and probably cold. After a couple hours though you can hold them as long as they look like they've perked up and are active and looking good.

Makes sense! Thanks so much!
