    Where do you find Muscovies? I don't see them listed in most hatchery catalogues--considering gettting a few ducklings. Any help would be appreciated-thank you.

    Meyer Hatchery has them. You might just try asking on Craigslist in the farm section. They are expensive as chicks go and sold as straight run. I sell my grown Muscoveys for $8 each and you know which sex they are. I don't ship them , sorry.

    I got mine from eggs I swapped on here. I know JM hatchery sales them. http://www.jmhatchery.com/index.php Never used the hatchery myself though so I can't say what the quality of the birds or service is.

  8. From ME, of course! Most hatcheries do not have them because they do not ship well?? I have had excellent luck with shipped, though. Craigslist always seems to have them on there.
