I was looking for a Runner breeder that was closer to me as my mom doesn't like the idea of shipping ducklings(i know its done all the time with out any dieing but thats just her) and I found that Holderread isn't too far from me! I love their runners too. I'v heard alot of good things about them. What's your experiance with them? I want just a pet quality but one that stands pretty upright. I couldn't find any pics of their pet quality ones any of you have any? I'm trying to decide weather to go with Holderread or Metzer. With Metzer the ducklings would have to be shipped but with Holderread we could go pick them up and save the cost of shipping(spending only the money for the ducklings instead of having to pay Metzers $35 minimum order fee plus the heat pack fee(we only want 2 ducklings). Although Holderread only does straight run and we only want a male and female which we could get specificaly at Metzer.
