    We have been wanting to get one female duck to join our flock for a while now and cannot find any locally or anyone who will ship just one. Well by happenstance I ran across efowl.com who will ship just one sexed female duck, and they have the breeds I am interested in (Runner, Cayuga, WH). But I have never heard anything about them, and know nothing about what type of business they run.

    So if anyone has any experience with efowl, lemme know! Also, if anyone has an awesome hen they'll ship me, let me know, cuz this search has been crazy difficult!

    Do. Not. Do. It. They have bad quality birds and steal photographs. Someone here on BYC experienced it for themselves.

    And this is why I came here to ask this question! lol I figured if anyone knew, you guys would. I got a kind of "off" vibe from the website, just didn't seem right, but I thought I should at least ask.

    Thanks BYCers! Any hatchery in US that will ship just one? Or any ideas for finding a hen? I have been trolling Craigslist and such but they never have sexed ducklings and I never find older birds. [​IMG]

    most efowl ducks come from metzer farms (I have ordered twice from them) you might as well order directly from the hatchery www.metzerfarms.com they will also sell you 2 ducklings at a time, for a special fee.

    You can also do that with McMurray, whom I've always had great service with. They sex their ducklings, too.

    Metzer sexes them for a small fee. They seem to be very accurate too based on my experience and others that have posted here.

    Quote:I never ordered from them but that's where the zoo near us ( Brookfield zoo) gets their ducks. They had some really healthy looking runners, swedes, pekins, white crested, and cayugas. Most of them still had their duckling fuzz which made them extra adorable.
