The first stop we made after opening the box at the post office was our local avain vet, who was shocked at how spry and active they were and how little stress they seemed to have been under during their cross country trek. In three years we have had virtually no health concerns with them.

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.
James From Unknown

We just wanted to let you know how excited we are to try our hand at ducks! We visited several hatchery sites but we heard only good things about your farm and decide to place our first duck order with you. Thank you all for the great info contained in your site and we will be waiting anxiously for April!

Just wanted to let you know, I received my two beautiful Rouen Ducklings today and I am VERY pleased with them! They came happy, healthy and are doing wonderful!

I am most impressed. Of the many shipments of chicks, ducklings, and guineas from other hatcheries and breeders, yours by far, has shown the most concern over the shipping care of the little birds.

The Runners are used for herding and they are amazing to watch. They kind of flow like water and keep together like flocks of sparrows do when they fly only the Runners are on foot. I love them.
Beth From Ontario, Canada

You really can't compare the taste of a Pekin with that of a slimy river duck...your ducks are the best and healthiest of all including my own hatch.
Janet From Bethel Island, CA

We ordered 10 ducklings from you just last week-they arrived quickly, and we were so happy to open the box and find beautiful, healthy virile babies.
Tom From Overbrook, KS

Thank you, you guys are always a class-operation.
Cheryl From Aptos, CA

Thanks for your amazing customer service and for breeding such gorgeous and exceptional ducklings. All the ducklings you sent us are doing fantastically!
Amanda From

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.

We just wanted to tell you how excited we are, the first egg hatched today in the 4th grade classroom at Surfside Elementary. It is a beautiful baby Mallard. Thanks for all the wonderful eggs and the information on your website. The kids are so happy. We candled them twice and the kids were able to see movement in most of the eggs.

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

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 ordered 20 straight run French Pearl Guineas and got them back in June...I am a big fan of Guineas and had them forever. This is by far the nicest flock of birds I've ever had.
Ed From Waverly, VA

I'd like to say thank you for the wonderful ducklings. I piled them all on my lap when I got them home and they stayed there for maybe a minute and then they were off to the races. They are much friendlier and don't run from me like ducks I had ordered about 5 years ago from another hatchery did.
Leslie From

My babies just arrived today, Tuesday 9:45am! Post office is fast! Thank you so much, they're beautiful and healthy! I've named them Coco & Ginger :-)
Susan From Glendale, CA

The rest of the ducklings and geese we got on April 14th are thriving. They're getting so big we need to move them to a larger pen today. I figured it would take 3-4 weeks for them to get this big since birds from other hatcheries took that long. Definitely some quality birds. Thanking you with gratitude.
Ed From Eden,NY

My order of Blue Swedish ducklings arrived in cold snowy Pennsylvania today in very good condition. Thank you.
Dale From Jonestown, PA

I learned it is more beneficial to order from hatcheries that specialize in specific types of birds. In your case it appears you have much better breeding stock which gives babies that are more capable of with standing the rigors of postal travel.
