    I ordered 12 and got 16 — a nice bonus! All arrived happy, vigorous and healthy. They seem to have doubled in size overnight. Great purchase!

  2. Bailey Calvert

    We ordered thirteen females and two males and one australorp rooster chick, they arrived in only two days, they are all healthy, lively, playful and peppy. We wanted to add ducks to out flock of sixteen austrlorp hens.

    I will not be buying from here again.

    I ordered my ducks from here for the first time and I will not be ordering again. I ordered 3 pekin ducklings and was sent 4 in total. shipping took 3 days and when i opened the box one duckling did not make it but the other 3 seemed okay. i got home and put them straight into the brooder and noticed something was not right with one of the ducklings. she couldnt walk or balance and just kept falling over and sliding on the ground instead of walking. i called immediately and was told that if it did not survive they would be sure to send me another duckling and that i shouldnt worry but that you just have to wait and see what happens because they either do good or die. she ended up dying in less then a half hour and nobody could tell me what was wrong with her besides google saying it seemed like a parasite. I called back and was told they would not send me another duck even if i were to pay extra. I paid $70 to get 3 ducklings i now have two and was refunded $7. not everyone has a bad experience, but this was mine and it was heart breaking. i am now running around trying to find ducklings because these girls need more friends. the two i have still are doing good and seem to be in good health

    oh no

    OMG I thought these duck were pets. until I saw a comment that said DeLiSioUsE!

  5. Duck duck goose

    They are great

    When we got the ducks in the mail it was a wonderful experience I hope you also get ducks from Cackle Hatchery



    Service and order were perfect! First time with ducks…a real learning experience. Yes, they are cute, and funny…and messy…REALLY MESSY. Be prepared to properly care for these buggers, translates to LOTS of room and several bedding changes daily. This is NOT your box in the living room endeavor! This is what I learned about Pekin ducks. They poop…constantly. They double in size almost weekly. They will play and splash any available water until it is gone. I would recommend getting your ducks in spring as the weather warms so you can house them outside – ish until the weather warms. They are certainly entertaining and have added a fun element to our homestead. They will require a constant water source where they can preferably swim and submerge. They will muck low wet spots in your lawn. They are easier prey for foxes than chickens. They will roost with your chickens but will make the coop 10x dirtier 10x faster! We love them for sure, but please don’t get them on a whim. Be prepared to be good duck parents for their sake.

    11 ducks

    Ordered 11, got 11. 1 was not healthy, it did not survive. I now have 10 ducks, which is ok because I’m not going to order just 1 duck to make up for the loss. otherwise very healthy ducks!

  8. Nicholas M


    I ordered 20 Pekin ducks, received 20, finished 20! Health was good!

  9. Mitch

    All good!

    Ordered 30 and received 31 lively with the sexes 100% correct!
    They are healthy & tasty. I have 19 left as of now. Perfectly satisfied !!

    Review by Cathy

    Birds arrived in great condition they were very hardy – grew very fast – dressed out very nicely the largest was almost 7 lbs- meat was very good will order again this spring

  11. Sohl Hill

    Healthy Overall

    We ordered 5 Pekins and received 5, but one was not “right.” Within the same order, we also ordered 10 other ducklings (5 Rouen, 5 Cayuga) and got an extra Cayuga. An order of 15 ducks (including the 5 Pekin) resulted in 16 ducks. That off Pekin didn’t survive, so we ended up with the original number of 15 at the end of the day. The rest were very healthy, very mild-mannered and beautiful. There were no health issues at all with any of the ducklings we received with the exception of that one duckling who didn’t make it. We will be ordering from you again!

    Highly Recommended

    I purchased 5 pekin ducks just to try something different. They were delivered intact and 3 of the 5 survived to adulthood. In a couple weeks they will be harvested and I look forward to see if there is a noticeable difference between them and what I buy at the store.

  13. Jojo

    Great girls and lots of fun to watch. 100 % satisfaction.

    Great breed. All five girls are laying eggs daily. We love watching them play in their pond. We will be enlarging their pond next Spring. We live in the mountains, so they have had different set up for their outside yard area. Wind brakes are the most important changes. We didn’t mix the hens we got. One thing we are surprised about is their size. They are double the size of most hens. Make sure you have the space to keep them happy and healthy. I would buy them again for sure.

  14. Happy

    fast growing, fatty and delicious

    We ordered nine of these ducks and Cackle sent us ten in our shipment of 23 birds, likely to cover just in case there was a mortality. All survived and we processed five after 2.5 months as we felt we were a little overrun. Fast growing birds, fatty and delicious. We kept four females and one male to overwinter.

  15. Ducks

    The best

    I love my ducks. They are fun to watch and easy care for. Their eggs are delicious.

    White Peking Ducks Female and Male

    I received these ducks in the Spring These ducks are adorable and very very healthy. They are huge and so much fun. I just love them and their side kicks Anacona’s and African Geese. They are all so funny and so friendly. All healthy and no loses.

  17. Love our Ladies

    Love our Ladies

    Great layers!

    These were our first foray into ducks. . . beautiful, graceful, funny, playful. . . and wonderful egg layers. We’re enjoying them!

  19. Crystal

    Nice sized and looking animals

  20. George13815

    Great meat birds

    Great meat birds, we slaughtered ours at 20 weeks old. Not too noisy and easy to keep.

  21. Alaska

    Great Layers

    Loud, but great layers and healthy birds to add to your flock…will be ordering more.

  22. Stacey

    Beautiful female ducklings, but very loud adults

    The 4 female ducklings arrived safely and have grown to be beautiful, health adult ducks. However, I would not purchase females again because the are exceedingly loud. The males are much quieter.

  23. Paytons place

    Peking ducks

    We purchased several of these ducklings this spring. I have to say they are the most heart birds we have. We have several other breeds of ducks and numerous chickens. The only mortality we have had with these was human error. They grew up very quickly and started laying eggs the same time our chickens did. My wife and kids love them. Glad we made this purchase

  24. Sarah

    Love my Girls!

    Love my girls! I got 6 pekins sexed last April and they’re beautiful! They produce 3-5 eggs a day and are extremely friendly. I would highly recommend them for eggs or pets. Karen, Brienne, Nancy, Susan, Paulette and CJ agree 🙂

  25. Marie

    Great ducks

    First off I ordered around forty or so birds from cackle hatchery this year and all of them made it in great condition not one dead bird. The white Peking ducks are full grown and laying already. They are big and friendly, very fun to watch. Almost all my chickens and ducks are from cackle hatchery and they are healthy and flourishing.

  26. Shari

    Love our ducks!

    We received 5 ducklings earlier this year; they were in great shape and so adorable! It is now November and we have been so impressed by how many eggs these girls have been laying; we have 8 Pekin ducks total and we have usually been getting around 6 eggs a day! Some days as many as 8 a day! We have them on an egg layer feed that is good for ducks (make sure whatever feed they are on has a good amount of niacin; ducks really need this but chickens don’t, so chicken feed usually doesn’t have enough unless it specifically is formulated for ducks too), and feed them canned no-salt vegetables every night, along with mealworms, and the ladies are paying us back with great eggs! Plus they have such cute personalities-highly recommend them!

    Pekin Ducks

    We’ve had these ducks since May. They’re alive and well. Very skittish around us. Which is a surprise from what I read on the web. They are laying eggs. Have been for a few weeks now. Not an exciting pet, but my 2 1/2 year old Granddaughter loves them!

  28. Raleigh’s Farm

    Healthy & Hearty Ducks!

    Ordered 15 and received bonus 2! They all arrived alive and very peppy. Just started laying beautiful extra-large eggs. I would recommend Cackle’s ducks to anyone looking to add some to their backyard flock.

  29. Randy

    4 Female Pekin Ducks

    Ordered 4 female Pekin ducks in March, received 5 pekin ducks but unfortunately 1 did not survive the USPS trip. The 4 that did make it are doing great and are laying eggs every day. Thank you.

  30. Toolshed905

    First time with ducks

    We ordered peking ducks for the 1st time this year. What a treat! They have kept us in stitches all year, really fun to watch. June to November they are now full size and ready for butchering. I expect they will dress out around 8 pounds each. We will definitely be ordering again.

  31. Paula


    All healthy and adorable… quack quack

  32. Bertha

    Best hatchery

    Babies arrive nice and snug in their box… good instructions for newbies. While I have some beauties my characters are the Peking especially my baby Bertha who leads the pack at feeding time

    Thank you so much Cackle Hatchery! Tractor Supply didn’t have ducks in time, and we are new to ducks.We have never had them. So after reading great reviews on Cackle hatchery, we decided to go with Cackle. We ordered 3 Pekin Ducks and 3 Rouen Ducks on Wednesday. They arrived today (Friday 13th) and all are in perfect condition! I am very happy with our order and we will for sure be buying from here again! Thanks again for making this a great experience!

    Adorable ducklings!

    I am SO impressed with Cackle Hatchery! We have ordered from other hatcheries in the past and will never go back. All of our birds arrived in fantastic condition, lovingly packaged with a grass mat to keep them comfortable on their long journey. Our Pekins are thriving and will grow up to be our beloved backyard pets. Thank you, Cackle!
