Hey all...can anyone explain why it is such a gouge to order less than 10 or 15 ducks. I am new to the idea of ducks, want to give it a try, but don't feel like shelling out the extra $40 just to order less than the minimum. The two hatcheries I've looked at, Meyer and McMurray, both require $40 for ordering only a few ducks. I don't know of anyone in my area that I can go in with to max out the order and $40 being $40, just don't feeling like giving that money away. I know they take extra care and handling to be shipped - something about hot packs (even in this heat?), but still. Anyone else feel this way or am I just a whiny baby?
