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.

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.

Hi, just informing that the ducks arrived early this am and seems to be fine. Thank you for doing a great job. We are looking forward to seeing them grow as family pets and producing eggs to feed our family.

I just wanted to drop in and say I ordered a Buff trio and 2 Welsh Harlequin ducks from you and I could not be happier! They are growing up very nice! I will buy again. Thank you!

Just wanted you to know how thankful we are to have the Duck eggs. The little boy who the eggs are for feels like it is Christmas...it has been a long time since he was able to have breakfast with eggs and he said there is nothing like dipping your turkey bacon in an egg.

My first ducks were 2 Blue Swedes, 2 Cayugas, and 4 Golden 300s I purchased while I was in college at UC Santa Cruz and picked up at the farm. They were lovely birds and you were lovely people, and seeing your facility and pasture then has stayed with me as an image of what a great hatchery should be.

They traveled well and they have made mine and my family's lives even better. I will recommend you to everyone and I will praise your company's name every chance I get. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Beautiful keets, very, very healthy after their cross country journey. I feel like I need to put them down for a nap, but even covering the brooder has not stopped them from eating and drinking and running around. Sure you did not send me little piglets with feathers???
Bob From

The runners are a scream! They are the most talkative, active and imaginative of any ducks I've seen. Just for the fun of them though, I'd suggest runners for folks wanting a little flock of ducks to lighten life.

I received my pair each of Toulouse and Brown Chinese geese in early April. We have enjoyed every moment with them and are having fun watching their feathers come in and their confidence grow. I wanted to say thank you for the safe delivery of healthy birds, and all of the great advice and information your website provides. I will absolutely recommend you to anyone looking for waterfowl!

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.
Vicki From Waters, MI

These ducks I have are so much better than the laying hens I've had previously, with higher production, stronger egg shells, and larger egg sizes.
Daryl From Auburn University, AL

Hello just wanted to say my ducks arrived safe and sound. Just wanted to say they are so cute that I am glad I got them from you guys. Thank you very much!

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.
Mary From Aztec,NM

The birds arrived in great(perfect!)condition this morning, thank you so much! I will definitely order from you again!
Melissa From Montpelier,VT

This is my first year raising waterfowl and the birds seem to be off to a roaring start. I'm certainly taken with goslings...they seem to be such characters!
Peter From Cambria, CA

Babies arrived this morning alive and full of spirit. They are beautiful and I do so appreciate the above and beyond service you went to to make up the lost babies from my original order. I will be telling all my friends about you and will only buy from you from now on.
Garland From Brodhead, KY

Ducks arrived this morning at 6:45 and they are adorable. I have to admit I was skeptical about mail ordering ducks, but the whole thing went off without a hitch! They are a nice addition to our growing urban flock:-) Thank you!
