    I have been searching in my area for some time now for someone who sells fertile duck eggs for me to hatch. No luck so far. I'm getting really discouraged [​IMG] . We have a pond in our back yard that needs a breeding pair of ducks that I would love to hatch from eggs myself. {{{sigh}}} I have been reading lots of threads about people on here hatching duck eggs and having beautiful baby ducklings.... I just want to say, your are so lucky lol....I know that I will find some...somewhere, somehow around where I live, just no luck so far.

    The least that have hatched out of eggs I have sent out have been 3, usually 6-8. If you are interested n Rouens, let me know and we can work something out.

    Quote:I live in Canada, not sure if you can send them over the border or even if they could make it ok that far. Also, I think it would cost an aweful lot. What color are your Rouens anyway?
