    Try Metzers... they'll sex them for a bit higher fee, but I know many who always get theirs from Metzers and are always happy with them...

    Cackle hatchery has a wide variety of ducks but they won't sex them for you. I don't speak from experience only researching their website. I got my aconas locally.
