    I can only say after getting on their website, looks like they are affiliated with efowl. Although I have never ordered from efowl I have seen many negative posts on here about them. I would go with Metzer.

    Let me also add: I've seen many positive posts concerning Metzer. [​IMG]

    I've only ordered from Cackle and Marti's Poultry. I have had good experiences with both.

    Ohhh Gottcha. That makes sense. Well, be sure to post your experience.

    Actually there is an ad on this page for www.mypetchicken.com. It says you can order as low as 3, but I wonder if they have ducks.

    Quote:Now that the rush is over and the weather is warmer many waterfowl places will sell on a phone call, drawbacks limited selection and shipping will seem high for only a few birds.

    Please know that if you ordered your ducks from Purely Poultry, you would not be getting them from efowl.

    If you do decide to give us a try, although we do not divulge our suppliers, we wouldn't be sending them from efowl.
