    I would like to hatch out some more SA's this Spring. If I get a drake, I'll probably sell my WH drake and start a flock of all SA's. Can anyone recommend a breeder? I'll post in WTB section also. Thanks!

    Try Holderread's Waterfowl. I've heard great things about them...so I placed an order for Saxony and Welsh Harlequins in April!

    I wouldn't mind Holderreads, but 10 is WAY too many, and I'd like to try the hatching game again.

    Quote:I used to think so, too. The great thing about BYC...you could let people know in your area that you will be ordering from Holderread's, and I guarantee you will have people lined up to go in on an order with you. [​IMG] Win/win. You get what you want and have other people pitch in on the order. Something to think about anyway.

    I ordered 14 ducks. Someone asked me if I would sell a bunch to them. (The answer was no.) I have been thinking about sending an email back to David Holderread to bump my list up. I now, too, want huge Silver Appleyards! If that's the case, I will add extra, extras and sell them to people in my area. The great thing is you know you are getting quality!
