    After the failed incubation of my duck eggs, I'm looking for good website that will ship a small amount of ducklings (probably 4-5). Any recommendations?

    You want some more duck eggs? [​IMG] I have way too many sitting on my kitchen counter wanting someone to put them in a bator.

    P.S. Your quail eggs are on their way. If I'd known you wanted duck eggs I'd have stuck them in there!

    Quote:You sound like me!! I have unplugged my bator for 3 days in the last year and couldn't handle it for any longer than that! I keep telling myself I'm going to unplug it when this batch is done, but then I keep adding eggs... [​IMG]

    Males are a mallard and a buff/pekin mix. Girls are a mallard, 2 buff crested, and a pekin. So basically they're mutts. [​IMG]

    Also if you wanting just 4-5 in which they'd probly be between $4-6 each you could order from ideal, Their $25 minium so that would add up to about the right amount

    Does Ideal ship this time of year though?? Looking at the website it says it ships only from February to May.

    they ship all the time.. hmm.... i got ducks form them in january last year, lol, they ship some ducks all winter long.

    you could also try metzer farms... I got my ducks from there and they have a low minimum. Not all of their ducks are avsilable all year though...

    It just says that they dont ship on sundays or mondays during this time

    "During the months of February through May, IDEAL will be shipping poultry Sunday through Wednesday. IDEAL hatches 52 weeks each year and most shipments will be made on Tuesday and Wednesday during the remaining months. "

    You could still get them now....they just only ship two days a week instead of 4
