    Habari, na karibu sana to BYC - great that you have joined us. A while ago, another member from Tz was also trying to find certain duck breeds for sale. I would imagine that they are here in Kenya (quality of them, in terms of being true to the actual breeds, are a different matter) so if you would be prepared to have them shipped through Namanga, that may be a possibility.

    Best wishes

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] I'd say your best bet would be to place a "wanted" advert somewhere on your local online advertising sites and if no joy, contact your Department of Agriculture and find out the regulations for importing poultry and hatching eggs. It's quite a process! I hope you'll find what you're looking for.
