    Hi!
    I have 4 lady Pekins and am looking to expand my flock by adding 1 Ancona and 1 Saxony ducklings (ideally) but have no idea where to buy them. I adopted the Pekins so not sure where to buy. We don't have a lot of land or I would have infinitely more ducks but we can definitely take in 2 more. Any suggestions as to where to find these breeds?

    Thanks!

    I'd suggest checking with your state thread as there may be members who can point you in the right direction.

    Good luck

    I breed Saxonys (holderreads line). Getting 1 duckling of each as day olds is very difficult, as they need warmth for the first couple weeks...if you wait till late, late spring, someone May ship... but usually , you need a minimum of 4 and heat packs and not many do that or know how. I ship adults and would some young ones, that are beginning to feather out ... but have never shipped small babies not feathered out. ( when shipped , temps can vary a lot, creating stress). Also some states make it very difficult to ship into because of all the regulations it becomes too costly to everyone except the BIG GUYS.(or if married to a vet ;0)
