    Hey there,

    I don't know of anywhere specifically, however, there is a Flock-Swap that happens in Fayetteville occasionally and most of the locals selling ducks use Craigslist. I am in Sanford. [​IMG]

    And not spend a fortune? Nope.

    I suspect they won't stay on your pond for very long. They aren't like domestic ducks.

    Do have wild wood ducks in your area at all? If so, you could maybe put certain plants and nest boxes around your pond to attract them. And, you can enjoy them without a big feed bill.

    $50 a pair.
    If on an open pond, need to be pinioned to keep them there.
