    I sold 2 last year for 5.00 a piece. over9 yrs ago I paid 7 each for my first 3. You can probably go higher just keep it within reason.

    I wish I could find some that reasonably priced. They aren't very popular in my area so I have a hard time finding day olds for less than 12 a piece. [​IMG]

    You can order them from meyer hatchery. I got a catalog from them and the prices were very reasonable around $5.83 ( assorted) to $10.83 ( chocolate). Of course you'll have to pay for shipping which is fair. I ordered my ducks before from Metzer and they were great, but they don't have muscovies. Meyer is the only one I know so far that carrys muscovy ducklings.


    I was about to order the muscovy ducklings, then a neighbor reported me to the animal control, so now I'm selling all of my ducks for the next 3 weeks [​IMG]. I still have a crazy passion for raising ducks, but it's okay not to have them now, since I have too many things going on at the moment. Anyway, good luck with buying your muscovies. Here in my area, muscovy ducklings are selling for $15/ each. I bought adult muscovies at the feed store for $20 a piece. There are some people selling month old muscovy ducklings for $8- 12/each, but those need to drive about one hour to get there.

    Do you happen to know the minimum order for Muscovies there? I wasn't aware that they sold scovies especially the chocolates. [​IMG]


    Sorry to hear about your neighbor troubles. [​IMG]

    Just looked at the catalog. For ducks, minimum order is 3, but the shipping will be expensive > $40. If you order from 10 the price will be less for each ducklings and the shipping will be just over $10. For my address in california, it's cheap for shipping ( and also a dozen of states), but I can see the shipping can get expensive in some other states.

    That's not too bad. Thanks for the info! I'll have to look into them more.
