All Mallard duckling orders need to be on a separate online order so your order can be processed properly. They cannot be shipped with any other fowl.
Mallard Ducks are very self-reliant, good foragers and the hens make outstanding mothers. They are very good flyers but even though they are called Wild Flying Mallard Ducks, when raised on a farm they will more than likely stay at the farm pond. They are good for insect control, entertainment, show and make good pets when handled. They have a beautiful plumage and the green heads are very colorful.
A permit is not needed to own or sell Mallard ducklings. All domestically hatched Mallard ducklings are required to be identified by US Fish and Wildlife. Our method is to remove a back toe when they hatch. This is an acceptable method by the US Fish and Wildlife and you do not need to do any other marking of our Mallards at any time. This is to show if they were ever inspected that the birds were domestically hatched and not "kidnapped" out of a local marsh.
Delivery Instructions: Limit to 4 drinks of warm water, take away water and repeat every 15 minutes for first 1 hour. This prevents them from going into water shock.
