    I have a lone 5 week old muscovy and need a buddy for it. We live in a suburb south of Houston. I just want 2 ducks for pets and eggs for my family.

    Can I select a duckling with a different breed, or is it best to stay with another Muscovy?

    I have 3 small children and neighbors, so are looking for a calm duck with sweet demeanor. I grew up with mallards and didn't fid them esecially friendly. We would like to find a female Buff or Welch Harlequin duckling we can drive to pick up. The feed stores around here don't seem to have any of these and minimum orders from a hatchery is 2.

    Any chance someone happens to have any ducklings between Houston and Amarillo. I searched craigslist in all the towns between here and there.

    Aside from this forum, you could also post an add in the "Wanted" section here on BYC. Good luck! You could also see if you could find someone else who wants a duckling to go in on an order with you.
