    Cage?
    Better get some cardboard to put outside around it. This is to keep the heat in, prevent drafts, and to contain the mess they will produce.

    Congrats! Your kids will go crazy...I know my 3 girls have!!!! They grow so quick and can make a poopy mess. Our 6 are only about 11 days old and they have at least double to tripled in size since we got them last Wednesday.

    I figured they might grow big quick. unlike chickens do. so their run is just about complete. a few little things, but its ready for them , when the time comes. although i love little fuzzies in the house, i like them outside better. [​IMG]
    my kids are very excited. they have already named them "jackie" and "leaky"......thats the names a 5 yr old and 3 yr old named them!

    Oh Boy... brothers & sisters. My hatch day is also on the 14th from Metzers and I also am taking "maturnity leave" when they get here next week. Mine are 1 pekin, 1 buff, 1 black swedish, 1 cayuga and 2 welsh harlequins. I'm beside myself. I live near Tulsa Oklahoma, so I think they will get here Wednesday, hopefully. I'm going to the post office tomorrow morning to make sure they are ready for next week. I also got 7 chciks hatching/shipping on the 21st. My friends were giving me a hard time at lunch today because I have names for all of them already. This is my first time with ducks & chickens and I'm very nervous.
