    I ordered 2 ducklings from Murray Mcmurray Hatchery. Based on past experiences, how likely do you think it will be for both ducklings to survive?

    Ducklings are pretty hardy. I have not lost a single one of hatchery ducklings. I did lose one of my broody duck hen call ducklings, but it was a freak accident and calls tend to be more fragile than other young ducklings.

    McMurray does not hatch ducklings. They will ship from www.metzerfarms.com in CA. Metzer would charge you less if you ordered from them directly.

    Actually, surprisingly Metzer was about 7 dollars more than Mcmurray when it came to the total. I checked out both
