    There are many hatcheries. I would pick a hatchery that is the closest to me. I have ordered chicks from Ideal which is in Cameron, Texas as I live in Florida. I have ordered from Townline Hatchery in Zeeland, Michigan because they were the only ones that had a breed I wanted. Here is a link for most hatcheries.

    I made my brooders too,

    I have never had any ducks but hopefully someone will post.
