    just looking at the picture on the site it looks like magpies, buff, black runners, cayuga, fawn and white runner, khaki campbells, gray mallards, rouens, and snowy mallards...so going buy that you'd have a chance of getting most of the breeds they offer

    When I ordered, I received 5 Cayugas and 20 Pekins [​IMG] Not exactly an "assortment," but it was clear that they tried to get me at least 2 breeds in there. This was during one of their sales, so the price of these ducks was really low, which could be why it wasn't too diverse. I think if you were paying top dollar for the assortment they would try to include a better variety of breeds, maybe even a rare one thrown in.

    I figured the assortment would just be leftover ducks, but I guess they are a middleman not a hatchery so its probably different with them.

    Why do you say that? I see that they have a huge selection of individual breeds for sale right now.

    That's strange, when I click on "Shop Online" and then on "Ducks," I see "Hatchery Choice Ducks," followed by a list of 12 different breeds!

    If you're looking for a particular breed, I would give them a call to place your order as sometimes their website does act up.

    You have to click on each tab across the top of that page to see each breed, or use the little arrows to the left and right of those little tabs.
