    Hi all,

    We are looking for some ducklings here in the Massachusetts or New England area. We just had a single hatchling that needs some friends. We are willing to drive within New England to pick them up.

    Thanks!

    There is nothing worse than a singleton hatchling.

    You might want to post this on the MA thread

    You could call Dodge Grain in Salem NH to see if they have any, though I think it's a little early for ducklings. Though if you get desperate they do have chicks available.

    There's Tom Doherty in Westford MA. If it has wings he's had it at some point. He does some hatching and also takes birds in. If he doesn't have any then he may know someone who does. He's a member of the Northeast Avicultural Society. (978) 392-1254
