You might think that a 10 hour truck ride and three days in a noisy show hall might cause the birds a little stress. We were concerned about that, too, being relative newbies to poultry exhibition. No worries, though. None of the birds ever gave indications of distress during or after their ride. A short time after cooping in, all of the ducks were 'chatting' with their neighbors, eating, and making a mess with the waterers, just as they would be doing at home.
