    Efowl does not seem to have a good reputation on here.

    efowl is a broker, not a hatchery, so you don't know where your ducklings are coming from. It also makes it hard to get good customer services. I used californiahatchery.com which is like efowl. Terrible CS. Never again! I suggest Metzers a lot because they are an actual hatchery with a great reputation.

    Alright thanks.
    I usually get my poultry from Meyer Hatchery, but I'll look it to Metzers.

    I've heard good stuff about Meyers as well. They have ducks too. Have you thought about ordering again from Meyers?

    I ordered my ducks from Meyers about a year ago. All are healthy and strong birds. I got a variety (runners, cayugas, swedes, and Welshes). Will be ordering more form them in a few weeks.

    I ordered ducks from them last year & only one died, but got my money back.
    I also just ordered a bunch of chicks from Meyer.

    I ordered six call ducks from E-fowl spring of 2012. All we alive and well when they arrived. I noticed the day after recieving them one had a problem with her leg. I emailed customer service. They offered to refund my money for that ducking if the problem continued. I emailed a few other times with questions and recieved a response within a day or two. My experience with e-fowl was a good one but that is the only time I've ever ordered from them.
