    We are now offering Ancona Ducks available. We have many different colors and ages.

    Ducklings: starting at $5/ea
    Hatching Eggs: $40/dozen (shipping included)

    Eggs can be shipped, but the others need to be picked up.

    UPDATE: We have ducklings due to hatch on the 11th & the 21st. Contact us for delivery options.


    Our line originally came from Holderreads', with Cackle added in recently, but they have become their own separate line. They lay white/cream, tinted, and blue/green eggs. Last year, they laid throughout the entire winter, but this winter was much harsher and they did stop laying for about two months. But now, even the late yearlings are laying in full swing. They all show the propensity to go broody if allowed to. One hen hatched out 6 ducklings over a month ago! We are working on markings and coloring, so not all of our birds are up to our ideal. But they have proved themselves as layer, setters, and good mothers. Our males have excellent coloring to help compensate for this. Here are some examples of our adults:
