    Hi everyone,
    I am wondering what hatcheries you have used when getting ducks. I don't want to spend lots off money and don't want more than 8 birds. I live in north West Oregon so if you know people or hatcheries close to me that would be even better.
    Thanks! [​IMG]

    Metzer lets you order small quantities. Healthy birds. Not show quality or anything, but healthy production quality birds.

    Holderreads won't let you order less than 10 to be shipped. Not sure how close you are to them to pick up though.

    Ideal poultry, they are really cheap, no order minimum with ducks, and very show quality. ( my fair champion duck last year was from ideal).. The have TONS of breeds. I love them.
