    I got my current 4 from Metzer Farms - they'll ship as few as 2! Of all the ducks I've had over the last couple years, the 4 from them have been the hartiest & healthiest by far. Efowl also ships small quantities. There's Holderreads but their minimum is either 6 or 10.

    I notice you're from MA too. The Agway by me (in Littleton) takes duckling orders once or twice a year and you can order as few as 1. The only drawback is that their breed choices are minimal. Not sure if all Agways sell them or just select ones.

    What breed of duck are you looking for?

    Holderread min order is 10 and no sexing.
    Metzers can ship as few as 2 and they will sex (for an extra fee).
    No clue about efoul.


    I'm very happy with my Metzer indian runners.

    Metzer farms is great... I got all of my ducks from there in pairs over a spread of 2 years... and you can get as little as two!

    I ordered 6 from Metzer last spring and had no problems. Customer service was nice and ducklings were alive and happy. Their heating pad was still warm when they got here to Michigan from California too.
