    I have been reading and reading and reading....Now not sure what or where to order from?...I am wanting to get a few ducks and a couple of goslings to raise together!...We have 3 drakes right now...1 Pekin, 1 Magpie and 1 Mallard/Runner/Call duck X...I really would like to get something that is critical or endangered...Do I buy the birds or incubate my own?...And Where or Where should I go to get them!...

    Please Help me decide!

    I ordered from Holderreads this year. Never ordered from them before, but I've always heard good things.

    Holderread's has good ducks. I adopted a couple of Holderread's ducks. Nice quality.

    I will check out Holderreads...Just not sure what I should order...I have tossed around the Buff, Welsh Harlequins or Saxony Ducks...Then what type of goose?...So Many decisions to make!

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    I ordered 2 Welsh Harlequins, 2 Blue Swedish, and 2 Cayuga (all 6 are female) from Meyer Hatchery here in Ohio......funny thing is....they are being drop shipped from California. My guess is that they are coming from Metzer Farms as well. ChickenCrazed - I think you made a good choice!

    Quote:ROFL...They probably are coming from the same hatchery...I went back and forth for days trying to make a decision until it was driving me crazy...Filled out order forms probably a dozen times...This time I just said "Go for it"...I am sure when they get here at the end of April I will be happy!...YEAH...New fuzzy butts on the way!

    Instead of having them shipped, I was going to take the whole family out to pick them up and save a little money. But Meyer Hatchery said that the ducks they sold all came from California. I was a bit bummed for awhile......I got over it. Gotta just pull the trigger......and do it. Someone once said to me 'paralysis by analysis'....so true.
