And have to say I am more excited about them than I was my chicks. Can I say that on a chick site? I ordered 10 ducks and one drake from Metzer Farms. A friend may or may not split the order with me ....that depends a lot on how quickly and big we can get a pen built. My original intention had been to get two and put them with my chickens but after a lot of reading I decided against that. Also, even though I am excited....I am getting a bit of cold feet since finding out that my ducklings will have to come clear across the country since I am in WV. Scary. I already have two very large clear tubs for brooders and have Brewer's Yeast waiting too. I know to have water 24/7 available and will probably use some half gallon milk jugs for waterers. Hopefully by the time they get here all chicks will be settled in their new coop and pen and I can concentrate on ducks. Anyway....any thoughts, advice or encouragement appreciated since the jitters have now set in.
