Most varieties of domestic ducklings naturally do not eat and drink a significant amount for the first 36 to 60 hours after hatching, so this is the perfect time to ship them. In fact, in natural incubation, this is the time when the ducklings would be resting under their mother, drying off and gaining strength to leave the nest. Use good quality alfalfa or grass hay to put in the bottom of each box to ensure good footing and proper absorption of all droppings.
Ducklings are a bit more susceptible to dehydration during shipment.So send some grogel B to go in with these ducklings to help them stay hydrated. They will arrive safe and healthy.
As always, consider the temperature factor which was discussed in the earlier post. Also, when shipping is being done, go for Express Mail for speedy delivery. Ducklings will most likely be dead if Priority Mail is used.
