    Ideal does not have a minimum order, just as long as it costs 20.00. With the shipping/small order charge. Its very easy, when you click on the breed just add like 15, but when you get to the check out screen update your check out to the 3 and the small order charge will be added and it should be 20.00 or so. I don't know if they have mallards at the moment, but it won't hurt to check it out. [​IMG]

    Any waterfowl related purchases, go to Metzer Farms ( www.metzer-farms.com ) as ducks and geese is all they do. Thier hybrid egg layers are amazing, as well as the Rouens, and Pekins..

    Dont get me wrong about Ideal. I have purchased close to 150 chicks from there this year alone. I just go to the waterfowl professionals for my ducks.
