MO - Dutch Hookbill Hatching Eggs

by Connie Abeln

Looking to share our good Dutch Hookbill ducks with breeders who will appreciate and use them. This spring and summer we will have a limited number of hatching eggs available, but we are sold out of juveniles and adults.

Dutch Hookbills are listed with the Livestock Conservancy as critically endangered ducks. They are friendly outdoor birds, hardy in cold and heat, good and reliable layers spring through fall. They eat very little feed if they have access to pasture, and they readily come back to their pen as it gets dark to be locked up safe. We have snowy, bibbed and dusky colors. The eggs are large, and range in color from pearl-white to light blue. Our flock is NPIP certified and AI-free.

We showed our Dutch Hookbill ducks for the first time at the Missouri State Poultry Association Double Show in Sedalia, Missouri, on April 15, 2017, with good results. Dutch Hookbills are not recognized yet by the American Poultry Association, so they show under All Other Ducks.

Our prices for Dutch Hookbill Ducks are:
If they were showed and won, $50/bird
If show quality but not yet showed, $40/bird
If not show quality but almost perfect, $25/bird

We are currently sold out of all adult and juvenile birds.

We have hatching eggs when the ducks begin to lay in the spring. We will begin shipping hatching eggs in April, when the weather warms enough for safe shipping of viable eggs. We will fill last year’s orders first, then move on to this year’s requests.

Hatching eggs are $30/dozen. We will need to know if you have a color preference, or want a mix. We cannot guarantee what happens to eggs after they leave our control, but they will be insured. We will send you the shipping receipt with the tracking number, so you can track their trip, and file any insurance claims with the USPS, if needed.

* We will not ship live birds until USPS shipping for live animals becomes more reliable.
* Hatching eggs are shipped express mail, delivery guaranteed in 1-2 days depending on location, marked fragile-special handling, and in a large padded box to minimize damage from physical movement and temperature changes. Shipping costs range from $80-125, depending on distance and weight of eggs shipped.
* All shipments are insured, and the buyer is responsible for filing any insurance claims with the US Postal Service if the eggs arrive late or broken. The buyer pays for all shipping costs.

Contact me at to order eggs for shipping, or to coordinate a good time and place to meet for delivering hatching eggs. We are near Saint Louis, Missouri, and we regularly attend the Clearview Feed Small Animal Swap in Union, Missouri. We are planning to attend the 2021 Ohio National in Columbus in November. We attend some swaps and shows in other states, so we may be able to work something out.

How this works

The way this works is that you contact me at, and I will respond as soon as I can. This year has been hectic for us!
We are at the end of the laying season now, so you could request a spot on the list for spring.

Hi, Fara,

Thank you for contacting me. I just got back from a trip and I am still catching up on emails. I see in your email that you inquired about ducklings, but I do not have ducklings this year, only hatching eggs.
