Which are the most inexpensive hatcheries to buy about 15 standard ducks, such as Rouen, Peking, etc?
Inexpensive Hatcheries for Ducks
- Family owned, family run
Wow! I looked at the Schlecht Hatchery website http://schlechthatchery.com/ and they not only offer surplus ducks at $2 each, they also offer surplus straight run chicks at $1 each (usually three or more varieties). And the shipping is the same all the way up to 50 birds. I also like that it is a family-owned business.
My father asked me to find him a hatchery that sells inexpensive ducks. I am going to suggest that he buy 25 surplus ducks and 25 surplus chicks from Schlecht Hatchery.
For the 50 birds with shipping, that would be $92, or $1.84 a bird. That is a fantastic deal. Especially since ducklings at most hatcheries seem to sell for at least $3.50 each, before shipping is added on.
Thanks, Ducksinarow. You are living up to your handle.
