    I have never ordered from a hatchery... I'm looking to get a few runners. Which hatchery do you recommend? I want them ASAP.

    We bought runners from Holdereads in oregon. Bought from them before and very good quality. They have many colors and also can order exibition if you want.

    Looks like for 10 of the Deluxe Assortment from Holderreads is $60.70 with shipping...

    Send me some good luck vibes for when I suggest this to my husband tonight. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Ok... I mailed in an order to Holderreads! Now that I think of it, do you think it's too late in the year???

    Not for ducklings. They are very messy and you will want to get them outside as soon as you can. We got ours from Holderreads too and we are very pleased with them.

    I know they had some as of two weeks ago. We are literally just up the road from them, but have not personally delt with them as there is no place to house a duck in a condo. LOL And I'm not back home enough to care for ducks.
