    Our ducklings shipped on Monday, but aren't scheduled to arrive at our post office until tomorrow. Is this a normal shipping time? Three days seems awfully long for day olds, but we are brand new to poultry, so I might just be over-worring about things.

    Thanks!

    That seems to be pretty standard. They should be fine. Are meeting them at the post office? That's what I do....as soon as they come off the big truck I take them home and get them settled. Good luck to you!
