    Ok I have a few questions for those of you who have ordered from Holderreads. I want to pick up my ducklings. We will be sending in our order soon. How do I tell them I want to pick my babies up? Do I put it on the form or call or email them telling them? How do I send the payment? Sorry if these are stupid questions I'v never ordered from a hatchery and their site kinda confuses me.

    Also show me your birds from Holderreads. Mostly interested in Runners =)

    I only bought Saxony, but the Runners should be pretty upright, specially if you buy the TSQ (top show quality) batch.

    You'll want to direct your questions to them by phone or email. There's a "contact us" tab on the website.

    When I look at my ducks, the difference between them and other ducks is strong. Sharper features in the bill shape and size. The way the legs are. The way the wings lay across the back. Different than any I've seen locally, even at little shows. They shouldn't be that different from bigger show type ducks. I hope to make it to Ohio Nationals and see some for comparison.

    They stand different even.

    I know you can pick them up, just not sure on the logistics, like if they'll call you the day of or send and email with a pick-up time... not sure.

    I sent a order in last year, for TSQ welsh harlequins, and some silkies. (1 blue runner as well)

    I would email them or call to tell them you want to pick up.

    And , I sent in a money order with the order sheet.

    Print out the order form. Fill it out, Write "For Pick up at the Farm" on the sheet. Send it in the mail, along with your check for payment.

    I suggest that you also email them and ask for further instructions.

    I picked up geese. By email, we agreed upon a time and date. I arrived on time, I was met in the driveway and my geese were brought out to me.

    Take your own carrier.
