    Has anyone used Efowl to order ducks? And if so how many and how much did it cost? Every time I add ducks to my cart the price is in the hundreds, why is that?

    Efowl birds are just Metzer birds, or so I have been told, and they have higher prices. I haven't ordered from them, though.

    My friend got her ducks from eFowl. Two arrived dead, one arrived with a "messed up beak" (never saw it so I am not sure what she means by this), two dropped dead later on at a young age.

    Just FYI... take from that what you will. It was enough for me to choose a different hatchery.

    Also they steal pics of BYC members' birds to represent their own crappy stock!! I know from experience and have proof. Stay away from these crooks. [​IMG]

    They are basically a middleman, so everything is 2-3x as much. Specially the ornamentals.

    Thanks guys for all the answers. I was just curious about them. I'm not ordering birds from them, don't worry.[​IMG]

    Whoops. Wish I would have found this site before I ordered. I just ordered 15 chicks and 15 guineas from them!

    [​IMG]. Your shipping may not have the same issues because Chicks and Guineas may be from a different hatchery than the ducks they drop ship

    Cancel that if you can, they are a web based business and don't hatch anything. Replacement birds can be hard to come by if something happens to the order. Customer service wise, you're better off going to the source.
