    Has anybody ever had or heard of experiance from this hatchery? I like the way their mix and match ducklins are, you can get all females, except one male, and a choice of 8 breeds. I would lovee to try it, but I havent ever heard of this place.

    no personal experience, but I noticed their images of the 4 colored runners (fawn and white, blue, black and chocolate) is the same image that is on the Metzer Farm website for their runners.
    Looks like cost is almost exactly the same as Metzer's and lots of us here have had good experience getting ducklings from them.

    I noticed a lot of pics are the same as metzer's. They must be a broker. I would just go through metzer's

    The reason I dont want to go through metzers is just because of this other websites mix and match for the babies. And this site seems to be less expencive.

    You can mix and match at Metzers and they will sex them for you too!!! But hey..its up to you. Me...I would go with Metzers over any other hatchery any day of the week. At least when YOU mix and match you are picking what breeds YOU want instead of getting what ever they pick for you!!!

    I would be careful, I recently had an experience with a horse breeder popping up out of the blue. When I looked into one of his horses it turns out it was a scam using stock photos. As soon as someone would pay for his horse it would be listed for sale again, he was even "selling" in two diffrent countries. This looks like it could be a simmaler idea. Unless someone can give you some personal experience I would be cautious on where you buy your ducklings.
