    So i bought one of those cackle surprise boxs and was planing on selling the ducks i got out of this package. Well they were so cute the whole family has fallen in love with them lol. There a little over a week old and from guesses on here after i was told there ducks not geese lol were thinking there pekins. So were going to keep a pair and name them Donald and Daisy. Then if all goes good i might add a runner and a broody breed duck to the bunch.
    My four little ducks all in a row lol

    I have rouen ducklings, royal palm calico sweetgrass turkey poults, and isa brown chicks right now all under a week old.

    The ducks are by far the cutest of them as well as the most entertaining. The turkeys and chicks just move around, peck, drink, and poo.

    The little ducklings were chasing each other around the waterer and playing in the water. It reminded me of the way puppies play with each other.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] They send people ducks just coz they know how hooked they will get to just a small number....Then slowly but surely- more and more people get hooked to duck ownership.. How can anyone not fall in love with the gorgeous antics of a baby duck...

    There is no escaping now.... I am just wondering how soon it will be before you place your next order - no chickens...just ducklings.... [​IMG] They are VERY addictive.

    al pacino saying,

    "Everytime I think I'm out, they puuuuulll me back in."

    i agree duckyfromoz, some kinda large syndicate is running this thing.

I never thought of owning them... then a woman my brother in law knows called me and said she ordered a fowl package or something from McMurray and then she had a heart attack and could I take 7 ducklings cause she can'tt ake care of them.... I of course said yes...... and they have stolen my heart [​IMG] ... tooo cute I love watching them...
