Put your ad in Craig`s List...Duck eggs wanted, in the farm and livestock division. Also in your State fair division there is a poultry division. People that take their birds to the fair also may have some for sale and could bring them there for you if they know you want them. If you check your Craigs list and  check for duck eggs, you may very well find your fertilized eggs or ducklings.

There are people right here on this BYC that have what you want. Just let it be known.

Does anyone know where I can get some young ducklings asap? I have a day-old Mallard single hatchling that needs some company desperately. Willing to consider other breeds and will drive to pick up most anywhere in New England. Please let me know if you know of any options.

Thanks!

When you find your source of duck egg`s, visit the place when you buy the eggs.  I could not find  duck egg s available close by so I finally bought 6 ducks to have my own egg.  i would be more concerned about how clean their area is, because they are very messy and love water, clean water several times a day. Even though they are a pig with feathers, they need to be kept clean for their own health. Ducks need to be protected from hawks above with netting and housed at night away from predater`s.

Dogs are one of the main killers. A good grade of kitty kibble  is one choice for a calcium .........

I live in Southern Maryland near Washington DC I've been selling my eggs for $5 a half-dozen based off of a farmer market price locally but I've been told that they can go for more as there are not many people selling them

I sell my duck eggs for $15 per dozen which is an incredible value. You have to market them right to do that stating all of the benefits. Have a look at this website and see what they sell them for. 18 to 19 per HALF dozen. Do remember that ducks eat WAY more food than chickens. So they cost way more to raise. A study in Backyard Chicken magazine showed that Chickens cost $12 per dozen eggs when factoring and amortizing the cost of their shelter, the land they use, food, health care, etc. And that didn't include feeding your pets when they are too old to lay just because you like them and aren't going to kill them. With that considered the cost would be well over 12 per dozen. So don't feel like you are ripping anyone off because you're not. They sell them for $3 per dozen in the stores because they cram them in the shelter in terrible conditions and kill them immediately when they stop laying. I'm sure you're not doing that to your ducks.

Duck eggs last over 2 months in the refrigerator and over 2 weeks unrefrigerated.
