    We just got our Cayugas, Blue Swedish, and Welsh Harlequins via the post office this morning from Meyer Hatchery (shipped in from California). They look great! My girls are already calling them by name.

    They are drinking, eating, and resting well already.

    I think they can be taken or snipped off pretty easily.

    You sure you didn't get them from Metzers? Meyer is in Ohio, Metzers is in CA. I got my geese from there- they are awesome!

    Congrats on the new cuties! [​IMG]

    I believe Meyer Hatchery is using Metzer Farms for all their ducks. From what I can surmise, they only have chicks here in Ohio. So, in essence, I believe that these are Metzer ducks, but Meyer Hatchery is the 'middle man'.
