    It seems no one in my area is selling ducklings again until Spring but I'd really like to get them now. I'm on break from school and have lots of time to spend with them.

    Anyone know where I can order just 3 or so sexed Runner ducklings? I'd love to get day-olds.

    Thanks!

    Metzer doesn't have a min order size and has runners hatching.
    Not sure what other places have no minimum size duckling order.

    I ordered 3 runner recently from Metzer - they are wonderful healthy ducklings. They do charge a small order fee, plus a minimum fee, but I thought it was worth it.

    McMurray Hatchery has a minimum of 10 ducklings, you could split an order with a friend or two, or order 10 and sell the extras.

    I would order from Metzers. They drop ship for McMurrays anyway and through Metzers, you can order only a few. I have actually seen some fairly decent quality Runners come from them as well.
