    I just noticed that Metzer Hatchery will sell as few as 2 sexed ducklings at a time with a special heating pad.
    *sigh* If only they had Mucovies. [​IMG]

    They have a minimum order fee of $30, plus $12 for the heat pack. You would be better off getting the regular minimum of 8 or 10 (can't remember for sure) and selling the rest. So what that means is no matter how many you order, if the total price of the ducks doesn't come up to at least $30, then the price is $30, plus the $12. And the $12 is for any amount less than 10. [​IMG] They don't have muscovies, but they have everything else it seems! Plus they sex them for $1.25 more [​IMG]

    i got my first two runners from Metzer. The total, with the minimum and the special heat pack, and shipping (i had to pay the highest shipping due to my zone) was almost $60. If you can take more than two, it's better to get your money's worth!

    They are a very nice hatchery though. One of my little guys died, and they sent me two new ducks to make up for it.

    Here in Ohio the laws say you must sell at least 6 day olds.
