In your opinion, where is the best place to order ducks from? Based on the price, and the quality of duck. I already kind of plan to order chicks from cackle, and maybe some poults, but I was wondering what you guys thought about the good place to order ducklings from?

Well, I suppose it depends on what you want. Metzer farms is pretty close to us, they're relatively cheap, healthy, and so far their girls are good layers. They've got some things that disqualify them for show like a mix of the gold/silver Harlequin and 'mallard-like facial stripes' but my degree of caring about those things is minimal. I hear Holderread has better quality stock.

We actually live about 30 minutes away from Holderread, but I'm not sure if I want to go there. They are so expensive. I want some muscovies, but they are kind of hard to find. But I don't really care about "show quality" birds as much as healthy birds, that lay good. And like what hatcheries are able to deliver them quicker, so that they don't die in transport?
