    Hi all, I thought I would show off my new arrivals, and have a little fun at the same time. This is the forth time I have had ducklings mailed to me, and the place I got these guys from ship out awesome ducklings. I have never had such healthy and energetic ducklings arrive in the mail before. That being said, I want to test you all. I have two different breeds seven of one kind, and four of the another. What are the two breeds. You don't win anything [​IMG] but you can test your knowledge, and show everyone how smart you are. [​IMG] Take a look.

    They loved their pureed peas. It was more like pea soup. I certainly didn't have to worry about them not getting enough to eat or drink. The peas were gone in 10 minutes.

    Look at the mess they are already making. [​IMG]

    The one looking at the camera is the sweetest. S/he doesn't mind being held. I love it!

    I will post the breeds tonight on this thread. If you need hints, ask. OK, I'll give one hint now. They were shipped from the west coast.

    Quote:OK, but can you guess where they came from. Yep, Holderreads. This was my first order from them, and I can't believe how healthy and energetic these guys are. Very good quality.
