Brothers Campfire The Great Duck Hunt of 2020

Hello Friends!

I have been duck hunting recently. I went to Google and found this site.

Everything should have been simple. I knew exactly what I wanted. 14 female Khaki Campbell ducks and one male African Goose.

My first attempt, I discovered that there are no African Geese available even though they are for sale on the site. I did reasearch and opted for a male Toulouse goose.

Upon completion of all the paperwork, which included my address, email, 3 phone numbers and several waivers

I entered my card number and hit the purchase button to find technology in the way and the chat button came up. I backed out of it to find my information was no longer input and had to complete it again. On the second go, I CAREFULLY avoided the chat button and hit the purchase button to find…

I attempted to call them and found they are closed on Sundays. Perhaps they pause the incubation during the weekends.

Yes, this is the tool of choice for blogging.

I opted for the chat option on the site. It went like this.

There were lengthy pauses. Messages by chat can be misinterpreted.
I took this initially as everyone ordering will be quarantined.

She took my number and let me know I would receive a callback in the morning exemplifying exemplary customer service. Thank you Renae!

That was yesterday. Today, my Beloved used duck eggs to make fluffy pancakes.

Iron Skillets Are The Best!

The duck hunt continued. Because I could not be bothered to wait by the phone, I called them, but the line was disconected.

No… Seriously, I blog with one of these!

I went back to the website chat for a second time.

Things started flowing at this point. For a third time, I completed the paperwork and was successful!

So, I have a confirmation of payment for 15 birds, and I am to expect them on May 11th, 2020. We will see where this duck hunt leads!

      I am not up to date on hunting terms. More properly, I would call it a domestic goose chase.

      I like ducks eggs when the mother has had fresh water! They can be fishy on occasion! Iron skillets feel like home to me!

    Whew!! Finally the order got through, but I don’t know why I am excited. πŸ˜…I can’t wait to get your birds deliveredπŸ‘

      Ha ha! Hello, A.S.! Thank you for stopping by; It is always an honor and privilege! When I do get them, I will duckument it. There is a lot of work involved! I am thinking about tagging and naming them!

      1. A.S. says:

        Thank you, I am happy to hear that you will duckument it ;). Yes, yes, yes!! Please name them. The male goose is going to have a lot of female attention πŸ˜‚

    What will you be doing with them?

    Love, light, and glitter

    Nice. Good luck!
    As far for the support, even if it takes time you need to be considerate and understand that maybe that person is assisting multiple persons at the same time. I mean I usually work with 6 or 8 πŸ˜‚… .
    Great post!

    1. Benjamin says:

      I agree with you totally. I believe I gave a shout out to one for exemplary customer service. I looked at thier web traffic and it is through the roof due to the season and the Corona virus. Thanks for the advice and thank you for stopping by the Campfire!

            Haha! I was talking about incase they didn’t show up.
            Also, trumpet will very soon have a friend as intelligent as him/her. (What is trumpet’s gender?) The ducks seem rather confused all the time.

          2. Benjamin says:

            I will be out a days wage if they do not arrive. Trumpet is a girl and I am hoping for a suitable husband for her. The ducks, unfortunately are in constant anarchy.
