We LOVE our geese, and were very happy with the way they arrived. It was our first experience in having birds shipped and I was more than a little nervous. I promise to contact you at the end of the year.

They're great! I received my 10 little Welsh Harlequin ducklings yesterday morning. They were thirsty and hungry, but robust. I was worried about them yet they traveled well for newborns! They seem to be getting on really well. Thank you for making this easy!

My 3 year old son and I were so excited to pick up our ducks from the post office this am. As always the birds arrived safe and sound with their GROW GEL! The post office lady told me that ducks from another hatchery didn't make it and they had no food on their transport. I love your quality and super customer service and look forward to ordering from you every Summer!

Been wanting to write and let you know the ducks arrived safely and are doing well. My parents are excited to have them and keeping them busy. They can't stop talking about them and how fast they are growing.

If every American business offered the quality of products and customer service that you do, we wouldn't be buying so much from overseas and the US would be the great country like it used to be.

I just received my ducks and geese and everything is great. They are settling in and are quite the characters already. This is my first time with geese so I can't wait to see how they turn out. Thank you so much for the help with ordering, you made the experience with ordering enjoyable.

I just wanted to let you know that our Blue Swedish and Welsh Harlequin ducks arrived- they where a day early, and all super healthy and active. thanks for sending us such great ducklings!
Wendy From Monrovia, CA

I wanted to thank you for all your help and for answering my email questions quickly. Since this was my first time incubating eggs, I was a bit nervous to do it incorrectly. Of the 11 eggs you sent me, one was infertile and two quit within the first three days of incubation. All of the rest hatched wonderfully over a three day period and the babies are doing great!
Rachael From Anchorage, AK

Our six-pack of ducklings arrived yesterday morning, and are in great shape. Thanks for finding a way to send out a smaller minimum order, with the heat pack. In the past I've had to order more than I wanted to keep. Your website provides a great deal of helpful information and your service has been quick, professional, and greatly appreciated!
Laurie From Guffey, CO

Thank you guys for all your help and patience with all my questions last week. It goes a long way to show me that us small family farms are just as important to you as the big guys.
Joshua From Longmont, CO

Hello, I want to let you know that my husband and I were extremely delighted and quite surprised when our 4 ducklings arrived this morning and were all in good health. They were supposed to arrive on Wednesday but did not arrive at our local post office until this morning(Thursday). We were so worried that we would have one or more losses, but were extremely happy to see they were all doing well. They have been eating, drinking, running around, and napping all day long. We just love them.
Mary From Lewisberry, PA

You all are my favorite hatchery. Excellent, stellar customer service and wonderful healthy babies.
Meryl From Westford, VT

We received our 7 little Indian Runner ducks. They arrived in great health and are doing awesome! I will recommend y'all to anyone looking for ducks or geese.
Chuck From Nada, TX

I just wanted to thank you for your outstanding customer service! I initially placed an order for duckling eggs, and when a few of them arrived broken (hard to believe because the packaging was absolutely excellent!), you not only shipped immediate replacements, but threw in a few extra to boot.
Robin From Pantego, NC

Just to let you know the two Tufted Buff geese arrived today in perfect health, cheeky and plump. Thank you!
Pat From North Salem, NY

I just wanted to let you know I got my ducklings from the post office and I am very happy with the quality of ducks you provided and I really like how you packed them. Keep up the good work!

What an amazing flock of ducks matured from the ducklings of early February. Thanks again for all your help with the replacement. I couldn't be happier.
Kathryn From Arp, TX

Thank you so much for being so efficient. I contacted a previous company who still even now hasn't replied so it's reassuring to know there are nice companies out there!

I was worried about ordering them from California because that is pretty far from Iowa but you guys packed my babies wonderfully and all 6 of them are alive and healthy. Thank you and I will definitely be ordering from you guys again.
