    After a disaster in ordering baby chicks last year from a hatchery. I have decided before doing it again I would check and see what results folks had with Holderread Farm. I am wanting some Bantam Ducks - preferably silkies or Aussie Spotted.

    Thanks

    I got some silver appleyard ducklings from them. Arrive on time in excellent condition. They can coast to coast overnight. [​IMG]

    I got a show pair of American Blues last fall. I love them. Great service, great communication! I have another order placed for this year, too.

    I have runners from them (last year) and 4 american buffs coming in two weeks. You should order now if you want them this year - they run out fast. [​IMG]

    Holderread's is more than reputable.

    Look up the name Dave Holderread. He is an expert on waterfowl.

    Ive always received very nice birds from them.
    I have some of their Aussie Spotted ducks and they are just the sweetest little ducks.

    I highly recommend them. [​IMG] I have all of my sebastopol geese stock from them and some of my giant dewlaps as well. Dave and Millie are the owners and very helpful and just plain nice folks.[​IMG]
