    Metzerfarms.com They have the best quality hatchery stock ducks, and they're the only one I know of that will ship just two ducklings.

    Ideal poultry has been amazing in my experience but they have a $25 minimum.

    I bought my runners from Meyer Hatchery and was very happy.

    And I do like to suggest adopting rescues. It's not for everyone, but I want to toss the idea out there.

    I have adopted five rescued buffs. No regrets.

    You might try petfinder.com; I think they have ducks that need homes on there.

    McMurray Hatchery has been good to order from. I order three ducks at a time from them. With shipping and all it usually comes to around $60 though.
