    you need to just buy a pair and save your money. Mandarin eggs ship very poorly as do most all duck eggs, especailly the wild types. They also are VERY hard to incubate especially if you are new to them.
    Also for what a set of 6- 12 eggs will cost you, you can buy a yearling pair and be sure you actually have birds instead of a bunch of dud eggs. Yearlings only cost $45- $60 per pair, depending on who you get them from, eggs usually average $10 each plus shipping.

    I have to agree with Aubrey here. I drooled over eggs for years and didn't want to spend the outrageous prices on them. I got a very nice pair of Mandarins for $45 a pair. I say spend your money on a nice pair!

    where are you located?
    Lots of time people in your neighborhood have them and you dont even know, that way you can avoid shipping.
    $45 is common on the $50-$60 is average, For God's sake dont buy all those out there for $80 $100 though.

    doubt he's still with us, but I bought tons of birds from Ed Jordan over the years, he's in Maine. If you could fine him, or who got his birds, you'd have it made.

    There are quite a few breeders in the new Engald area, so shipping wouldnt be horrible on you.
