Ok-- here's the story: Tractor Supply was supposed to have their chicks, ducks & turkeys in Last Friday. After getting groceries (which I had put off 2 days so as to save the extra trip) I drove over--- NO Babies!!! They said they'd be here Monday. SO-- because of a road closing, the kids bus routes changed during Spring break-- NO ONE told us it would be early-- so Monday they both missed the bus! Tractor Supply is "sorta" on the way (it's a 20 minute drive) so we stopped--- NO BABIES! "Check with us Tomorrow"..... So TUESDAY ... bus came EVEN EARLIER!! Missed it AGAIN! So stopped by TSC--- Nope! No chicks yet-- but they were "on the way from the post office, come back after 11:00".... So I went and picked the kids up AFTER school and go pick out chicks... THERE WEREN'T ANY!! BUT: There WAS a brooder full of 150 baby ducks! So we spent about 20 minutes or so watching who was alert, eating drinking and poo-ing...and bought the mandatory minimum of 6 ducklings instead of the chicks we were gonna get! SO-- since these are our 1st ducklings ever-- ANY recommendations or advice (especially the kind that starts with :never" or "always"....) Would be GREATLY appreciated!! They are SOOO cute and sooo friendly!! OH NO!! ANOTHER addiction!!???
