    Hi!

    I am looking for a hatchery that offers sexed Ancona Ducks.

    So far I was only able to find straight runs.

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks ;-)

    Wish I could help, but I don't know of any either. I ordered Anconas from Cackle Hatchery, but they don't sex them... bummer too, because all 4 of the ones I got were boys. All the other places I have looked only sell them straight run, and Metzer (who has an option for all theirs to be sexed for an additional price) don't even sell Ancona ducks!!

    I think Ideal sells sexed Anconas, but I can't verify that right now because their site is down. Wouldn't hurt to check once it's back up though.

    Thanks guys!

    Tried Ideal, looks like they are selling only straight runs this year. ;-(

    Any other suggestions?

    If I can find a hatchery, I will let you know ;-)

    Found a hatchery, but wanted to wait until my ducklings arrived before posting a name.

    Well,
    they were ordered and paid for months ago, but never shipped (per farm eggs were set End of April) and I finally canceled the order a couple of days ago.
    Needless to say, that the farm owner did not take it very well.......but I did not want to take the risk of my cc company saying: "you waited too long for refund".

    We finally decided to just try and hatch eggs.

    With this being said, I am sure we will have some Ancona drakes available in a couple months. [​IMG]

    Located in Oregon, pick-up only.

    If interested, please send me a PM and I will keep you updated on what is hatching [​IMG]
