    So, which hatchery is the best? Has anyone had any problems with any of the hatcheries I have found online? Feel free to PM or email me if we aren't allowed to say names on this forum.

    Thanks!

    I have ordered through e-fowl and Cackle. Very good results for both.

    Metzer Farms here - one order last summer and the ducks are great and their customer service is great.

    I, personally, would say either Metzer or Holderread.

    I've ordered through Cackle a few times and never had a problem. There used to be a little hatchery called Marti's Poultry Farm that we always ordered from... I wonder if they're still around. (googling now.) [​IMG]

    I always hear good things about Metzer, and I had great success with Holderreads. Holderreads let's you choose the bird quality, which I think is cool. You can select babies from out of their show stock, or for half the price babies perfectly suited for putzing around the back yard. If you really want nice birds, you can also buy started birds that have been graded for quality if you want to show them. They're like a private breeder but have the numbers to call themselves a hatchery. I like supporting them and their concept.
