    Someone nearby is selling extra female ducklings that they got included in their order from Metzer Farms.
    I was thinking of buying 2 ducklings as they're selling them for $18 each so it's a great deal.

    What does anyone who's own/currently owns these ducks think of them?
    How loud are they?


    Any type of feedback is welcome, even negative feedback.
    I'm only getting them as I keep getting told to get more females for our 2 duck flock so that our young drake doesn't over breed our only female. She's actually gotten him to stop mounting him by attacking him if he tries so he's stop for now.
    And I'm getting ducklings as I want to bond with them before they start living outside.

    If you get ducklings what is the guarantee that you will not get more drakes ?

    You'll probably get drakes to be honest especially of they "area great price" if you very specifically just want a certain sex buy one you know what the sex of the duck is so you do not end up with 1 girl and 3 boys

    Couple days old.
    And they look exactly like Metzer's female ducklings photos.
    But I think I'll just keep my duck flock to 2 as I'm starting to not want to buy any ducks/ducklings.

    At least if you know what color drakes and females look like then you know what your getting. Go for it. But remember all females can be loud at times so take that into consideration if your worried about neighbors.
