Has anyone ever bought waterfowl from this hatchery? There specimens look very good but not for $100 for a pair of blue east indies.

I have several geese from them.   All have grown into beautiful geese.  I have another small order of goslings coming from them this year.

I don't know about their ducks since I have not ordered any from them.

Thanks for the help. I was looking at the geese but figured small bantam ducks would take up less room allowing for more breeds.

I have goslings on order from them too. I've wanted some of their stock for years!

I got a black male and a blue female east indie pair from them a few weeks ago and they look great. Very nice birds and worth it.

My sebs are from there and to join the chorus, yes they are worth it!

I've bought Runners and Silky Ducks from them and yes, they are more expensive than other hatcheries.    BUT, I can tell you that their birds are top quality and their service is wonderful. 
I'm extremely satisfied.
