    NPIP CERTIFIED FLOCK!

    I have duck hatching eggs for sale. All of the parent stock are purebred, some are from Metzers, some from Cackle, but most are from independent breeders and from my original flock.
    The breeds I have are Khaki Campbell, Welsh Harlequin, Pekin, Blue Swedish (crested), fawn and white runner, Cayuga.
    Each breed was raised separate, and they tend to form their own little groups even though they are all free-ranging together right now. I will be separating them by breed next month, but until then there is a chance the ducklings that hatch from these eggs could be mixed.
    I hatched some last month and got blue swedish, cayuga (cross, had white feet), khaki campbells, welsh harlequins, pekins, and a few that looked like they were crosses.
    My fertility rate has been EXCELLENT! The last few dozen bought and hatched, one woman had 5 out of 6 hatch, another got 7 out of 10, 10 out of 12, and 9 out of 12. (these were the hatch rates of people who emailed me to tell me). I started with another 20 in my incubator and so far I have 17 developing!

    I also have some muscovy. They are currently free-ranging as well, but only tend to hang out with the other ducks during feeding time. The hens are not laying, but I suppose there is a slight chance the 2 drakes I have could mate with one of the other duck breeds. I haven't yet had anyone hatch mules, but I just want the buyer to know it could happen.

    I will ship anywhere in the US, just keep in mind that once they leave my hands I have no control over how well the eggs are treated! I will, however, pack them very carefully (the way I would want to receive them).

    $15 for 10 eggs (I will include extras if I have them). Shipping is a flat rate of $20 (this includes packing materials, tracking)

    Feel free to PM me with any questions!
