    For each duck! Are they show quality? Maybe if they are REALLY nice quality. Otherwise you can go to places like www.metzerfarms.com and get one for a couple of bucks. :)

    I'm over here in Australia and pricing for poultry is way different. We don't have huge hatcheries that sell birds for a "couple bucks". I would be happy to pay $25.00 for some nice adult Pekins. If I was into Pekins.lol.

    I paid $40 for two back yard quality Indian Runner ducks.

    Depends on where they're coming from and age and what they're worth to you. Show quality, well cared for young birds would be worth it, I think. Say range of $10-25. Older birds: $5-10

    In Minnesota it is only 4-5 bucks and you can also buy off of hatcheries show quality and pet quality for cheap.
