    We'd like to hatch our own ducklings. Where in Greater Seattle area we can go to buy them? Thanks in advance for your info.

    I just asked a similar question and I was told to try craigslist in your area (however far you would be willing to travel). Another idea is a hatchery - some sell fertilized eggs. I was able to pick up a trio on craigslist so I am planning on using theirs to hatch out ducklings for myself. [​IMG]

    I don't know around those parts, but cypressduckfarm.com has them at a really good rate! They are located in South Louisiana.

    I have a bunch of their eggs in the bator now!

    We have Mallard/Rouen and Rouen/Rouen eggs. We have a Rouen drake, 3 mallard hens and a Rouen hen. Rouens are production stock from friends and the Mallards from Metzers. The drake is about 10 months old and the hens are just under 8 months old. I haven't been worrying about fertility, because we don't want to hatch them, just eat them. I'd have to ask my son if he'd like to sell them. How many are you looking for? We're getting 3 of the Mallard/Rouen eggs and 1 Rouen/Rouen egg a day. We're in North Bend, but we are in Seattle every day. Send me a PM.

    ***EDIT*** Having issues with my PM, so if I don't answer, let me know you sent one in the forum.

    Welcome to the forum. You could try ebay, try a search for (breed name) hatching eggs.

    Try the free papers and livestack magazines and craigslist
