    Hello, I'm in Jacksonville Fl- and I'd like to order ducks... from Metzer(sexed)... anyone want to go in with me?

    I live in the Arlington Area near 295/9A and SS connecter... (approx)

    I only want 5 and don't want to pay extra for everything else.

    Anybody want to help?


    Current Logistics plan:

    One of us orders and pays in full the hatchery, the other pays by paypal (to the orderer) for their share of the cost and we meet within 7 days of arrival.

    Losses are split 50/50 if the same breeds are chosen.

    (Example we both want White Hybrid 300 and one Runner pair- a pair that causes sex links- still looking into that... I think Buff * Black but unsure which way)

    Mainly I need them sexed and I'd like at least one set of the super egg layers to appease my hubbie (set being three-five females) then I want a couple (pair) of runners, specifiacly a set that will have sex-linked ducklings. (is possible?)

    He doesnt know how to sex ducklings and thats a far drive if you are just looking for the pair. I would have gone in on it with you if i had not just gotten my 3 news ones from him. Good luck and hope someone can help.

    Thanks, maybe in the future.

    Anyone else??

    Cute little duckings...

    LMK if the hatchery I've chosen is the problem... or anything else- I just don't need 10 ducks.

    How far do you want to drive?
    I am going to see if Dh is on board with putting in an order for 2-3. I'm near Pensacola - so a trip from Jax, but an option if you want to take a drive.

    I can do this with you, I am guessing you want to order from Metzer? If so I can order my geese if they are available.

    I'm on the Westside of Jacksonville and yes I was just looking at placing an order. I was wanting to get maybe 5 or so, probably Welsh Harlequins or Welshies and Khakis.

    Awesome - one large order?

    I want (4) White Hybrid Layers (female)
    1 Pair (1m/1f) Black runners

    FLChickens wants Geese

    SaraFl? How many of each? (Now for egg laying look at the Hybrid 300s or White 300s)

    Sara are you NIPI?

    I'm not yet still on the Duval County waiting list - till autumn I think they said.
