i just recently moved to alabama along with my two indian runners. I just love having them around and have more time and space to add another duck to my flock. I'm still unsure of a breed, but am interested in black east indies or crested ducks, maybe a cayuga... however i am having the hardest time trying to locate where to purchase a new baby. i do NOT want to do shipping as my first little black runner i purchased died when the shipping took two days longer than expected. I'd like to pick one up the day they hatch. So, does any one know of any hatchery/breeder of any of the above mentioned breeds anywhere in alabama? i'll travel to western georgia or even eastern louisiana, nw florida, or southern tennesee if i must. i know they won't be hnatching again until FEB but i am trying to get a head start on it. I'd be willing to pay more that what the ducklings are worth in the breeder is willing to deal with my request of being there when they hatch. thanks so much in advance guys! BTW, any info would help even if it's just partcial. or perhaps you might be expecting in the spring depending on your flock? anything would help, thanks again!
