Cackle Hatchery Chicks

We got a call from Cackle on the 10th stating that the Ancona ducks didn't hatch well and could they replace them with a different type of duck.  Danielle agreed to the Blue Swedish.  I'm wondering if it will mate with the Ancona and have weird looking babies.

The chicks from Cackle Hatchery arrived today.  Actually, they were a day late.  They should have arrived at our house today but only made it to Albany.  They called and said that they could be picked up today or she could bring them to the house tomorrow.  Being the third day I thought it best to go get them.  Baby chicks have a belly full of yolk when they hatch so they are good for about 3 days with no food/water.  Almost like they were designed to be mailed :).  I drove to Albany and picked them up.  The post office wins because since I picked them up in Albany they count that as a third day delivery and don't have to refund any money.  I'm not sure I agree with that, but oh well. Here they are.
