    I know of Metzer farms, eFowl, and Murray Mcmurray Hatchery, but all require about/at least 10 eggs for a hatching minimum. I am not concerned about the price its just that I am only looking to hatch a few ducklings, maybe 4 or 5 and do not want to buy fertilized eggs and then not use them and deprive a duck of its life by not incubating it.

    If anyone knows of a place that would ship hatching eggs or if anyone themselves has ducks that produce fertilized eggs and is looking to share a few please let me know.

    Hi,
    I currently have welsh harlequin hatching eggs if you are interested.
    They are not proven fertility yet (I havent' had time to plug in my incubator but the drake is very active and people who have gotten eggs from me for the past few weeks have had great fertility) so are $15 per dozen. They will be $25 per dozen when I prove fertility on my end.
    I am in southern maine and can certainly ship to you. Shipping to Concord Mass would be about $12.35 for up to a dozen (I always add a few extras if I have them). But I can ship as few as one depending on how many you want :)

    Have you looked on eBay? There are a lot of people on here that can help you out too esp. in the buy/sell/trade section.

  5. Do you sell WH ducklings or just the eggs?

    Hi there,
    I am very interested in WH's, so I may be contacting you. I won't be hatching until the weather gets warmer, so springtime but I am certainly going to keep your info at hand and in a few months I will check in to see if you're still producing fertile eggs, Thanks!

    I should have eggs all year.
    Ducklings will be hatching starting in late March for the welsh. I do ship 8 or more, or local pick up in southern maine :)

    I have hatching eggs and will sell any number you want. $1 per egg for the barnyard mix breeds. When I separate the breeds I'll have Pekins and a layer cross ( welsh harlequin/Cayuga) for $2 per egg. Plus shipping of course.
