    Thanks for the answers, Tony! That seems like a good price to me, but I've never bargain shopped for a soft side dog taxi. [​IMG]

    LOL...1.2 million meal worms...no problem! I've seen those buckets of yours.

    @Debs Flock here is your thermometer picture:

    The heat lamp completely obscures the reading, but it does read between 95 and 98 degrees [​IMG]

    And I did get a little package in the mail this morning...

    All of them are happy and healthy.

    Looks like Allie (I am guessing by size - she and Latte are about the same color so whoever is the Pekin isn't pure yellow so I am not sure at this point.) might have had a fight with her egg / another duck, she's missing a bit of fluff on her back, but she is walking and flapped both her winglets fine so it may just be a distinguishing mark.

    More pics to come, but I am going to visit with my babies a bit [​IMG]

    Congrats on your new babies. They are adoreable. The sit up is like you were expecting 3 little princess'. Which you did get. Please take lots of pics I'm subscribing so I don't miss anything.

    Thanks for sharing them with us. I can't wait to see them as they grow.

    Well I had a chance to look at Allie's "wound", the "scab" seems to dissolve slowly under a wet Q-tip. I believe it is what avian vets like to refer to as poop. It is set in very deep and it is fairly thick, but now that I got it damp, she is trying to preen it a bit and breaking it up. I will let her work on it back in the brooder some, then moisten it again and repeat (when I work on it, I can't get much done because she gets very squirmy - I bet it is pulling her fluff). Hopefully once it is all washed / picked away, we will find out that is all it was.

    Congrats to the new Mommy and Daddy Ling-lings!!! Awfully cute!! How can you both stand all that cuteness in one package?? We've been debating for 6 months what we'd do with the eggs that are now coming at a fast and furious pace!! Can't wait to see how they all transform over the next few weeks / months!! And great job on the brooder!! If you've got a patent on it, you'll soon be getting royalties from at least us.

    Cheers! And here's to little twills, chirps, wobles and beginner quacks!!!
