    Quote:They are not a hatchery, they simply drop ship from other hatcheries. I have ordered from them 3 times, all of which I had a bad experience. I would go with ideal poultry.

    Received 15/25 black magpie ducks this morning from efowl. All arrived safe and look good. Contacted them via email this morning and they responded in 20 min saying the other 10 should ship next week.

    So I guess so far so good.... have nothing to compair it to though.

    Bought my 3 cayuga females from them last year...all arrived healthy and alert. They are still in my backyard now.

    They drop ship you are just paying more when you can buy directly from Ideal Poultry which is one of the places where they get their ducklings.

    Metzer or Holderread are better. efowl ships from them too. Ideal poultry has a bad habit of sending male chickens for "heat"

    Quote:I would prefer the male chickens over dead chickens any day. Its not like you can't just put them on craigslist. Almost all hatcheries will include male chicks if its in the spring or winter for warmth. I know that Murray, Ideal Cackle, Sandhill and Strongbergs all do that.
