You can really tell when postal workers get excited about a package. They called at 7:15 this morning and told us that our ducklings had arrived and that we could come and get them. This perplexed us because they don't open until 9:00 but they said that we could come to the back door and ring the bell and they would give them to us. How cool!
They are bigger than the chicks and are a lot more active. They are stronger and can jump all over the chicks. They are sooo soft and fluffy. :)

Hilltop Farm gets some peepers

We got the call this morning that we have been looking forward to. The post office called to tell us that they have a box making a lot of noise and that we can come and get it.

We ordered 29 and they shipped 44 babies! This helps them to stay warm and survive the trip from Iowa. We may lose a couple when it's all said and done but they should start laying eggs around Abby's birthday in June. They are eating and drinking well so far.

The kids love them!
