Seems Metzer Farms is comfortable shipping ducklings in the summer. So I have 4 of them in my cart. I was just waiting for DH to hear if he would be going TAD 12 hours from here once he returned from his isolated duty station, to know if I'd be dealing with weekends away from home a couple times a month. Sounds like he won't have to (could change, and if it does, we'll deal with it then). So, I have 3 runners and a pekin in my cart. Should be available on 02 Aug! Before I finish the order, is there a reason I shouldn't be mail ordering ducks in August in southern AL? Or does anybody know of anybody in southern MS/AL, northwest FL area that has indian runner ducklings I can go pick up? I'd rather do local, but I've not been able to find any yet.
