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 🙂
