    Hi! I'm a newbie and I'm looking to locate an individual/farm in CO who raises/sells Ancona ducks. Please pass along any backyard duck advice you may have. I'm already looking forward to spring!

    [​IMG]. Have you considered hatching eggs? We have several breeders on here who sell hatching eggs of that breed. I hope you'll join us down in the duck section!

    [​IMG] go to "where am I, where are you," in the social forum to locate and post on your state thread. You may be able to find the ducks locally and forgo having them shipped .

    I've considered hatching eggs but I can't get less than ten shipped to me and I'm only wanting 3 ducks to start with.

    Welcome to BYC [​IMG] Glad you joined us! Once you have a post count of 20 or more you can create a classified in the Buy ~ Sell ~ Trade and place a "wanted" ad there, unless you find what you are looking for already there!
