    I picked up 4 Mallards last week and ordered 10 more (Khaki campbells and Pekins) from Ideal, shipping 3/16. These little ones are so cute, I just had to order more. Congrats on your orders.

    Quote:I don't recall if I received an email confirmation when they shipped or not. They are in CA, so they won't be answering the phone quite yet.
    They will ship out on Monday and you should have them sometime on Wednesday, maybe even Tuesday.
