    Is there any "good" online duck supplies store? All i can find are breeders that sell ducks. where i live, i am a good drive to the nearest place to buy feed, bedding, and other important needs...

    To be honest, local breeders are often the way to go. No shipping involved, and you can see their quality with your own eyes, instead of paying and then hoping what you get is what you paid for.

    Its just the only thing around me is a feed store nd the only thing they have is scratch...they don't have anything.. And the tractor supply doesn't have a whole lot. and its so far away that its really not worth the drive to pend 30$ in gas just for a 15$ bag of feed or 5$ bag of bedding.. lol[​IMG]

    Hmmm. Well, have you checked out Metzer Farms? They have a great variety! If you're gonna buy ducks online, they'd be the way to go. The only problem is they don't carry call ducks. *grumble*

    OH! I'm an idiot...I thought you were looking to buy ducks, not stuff FOR ducks! [​IMG] Ha, sorry!

    Umm...aside from just googling I can't think of any specific sites. I buy mazuri food online delivered, altohugh it's pricey, it's really good quality. As for bedding, try petco.com, you can get newspaper pellets for super cheap.

    Try Amazon.com ... I live in the boonies, so I order a TON of stuff from them. If you have Prime, you get free 2-day shipping on a lot of stuff. I ordered everything I needed for my brooder setup from them.

    i honestly did not think of amazon lol or ebay.. i will definitely check it out.. and i tried to use the paper pellets but one of my ducks is not right in the head lol he tries to eat it. he managed to eat a tiny bit before i could grab them out of there broodery to take it out. Ive been using pine shavings since the heat lamp isn't on all the time because i have there broodery in my house and the heats on and its around 80 where there at. im going to move them to cooler room next week. but thank you!

    Regarding eating bedding - my Runnerlings tried to eat shavings, so we used old towels till they got a bit bigger.
