We had several new arrivals today, that I wasn’t quite ready for. I ordered some Magpie Call ducks from Faith Valley Waterfowl and they were scheduled to arrive tomorrow. The post office isn’t known for their speedy deliveries, so I didn’t have ‘running to the post office’ on my list of things to do today. I got a call at 11:00 saying that my ducks had arrived! So, I ran up to my local post office – the location where I have picked up my ducks in the past. The look on the postmaster’s face was priceless when I told him that I was there to pick my ducks up 🙂 He very nicely informed me that he did not have any ducks in the back. I called the 800 number for the Post Office and gave them the tracking number and they said that there were 3 locations that they could be at – what??? Shouldn’t the tracking number tell them exactly where the package was! Luckily, they were at the location I called first. So, we headed in the opposite direction and picked up our new ducks.
I love this color!
Here you can see just how little the call ducks are. This little gal is 6 weeks old and will get a little bigger, but not a lot. It was nice they were able to get out of the box a day early!
Remember the wooly girls…
here is Symphony post shearing. I didn’t think they were due until next week, but when I went out to do evening chores, she had a lamb with her!
Such a good mama! He was dry and had a full belly.
She is very protective! He has a beautiful fleece. It is silly how excited my son and I were to have a new lamb after just having 40 of the little boogers! They sure are cute 🙂
Magpie call ducks, I want them..I do, I do!!!! But then, I am still in the midst of raising the Magpie regular size ducklings I have! I did not know there was such a duck as the Magpie Call duck!
Isn’t it fun ? To be so excited over lambs no matter how many we have already had?Love the photos of your son with the new lamb.
I didn’t realize you could buy fowl that old via mailorder!
Cute! Ducks, new lamb and your son 🙂
Those Magpies are good looking…..but not nearly as good looking as that handsome ram lamb that Symphony produced! (not that I’m partial)….oh yeah and that handsome, young man, Theron, that you produced!!! 🙂 He is such a “dyed in the wool” animal lover!!
