A new way to sext ducklings.... it this true?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
When I got my ducklings at TSC they asked me if I wanted girls or boys and I needed 2 female. Apparently if you hold them on your back if they hold. I think legs close to their body its a female and if one or both stick out its a boy. The 2 that I got did keep their legs to their body and the other stuck one out so I'm thinking this could actually be true. If Any of you have a duckling and you know the sex could you try it and see if this is true?

It works 50 % of the time.

Friends are the family you make for yourself.
There are no coincidences- only providences.

X 2 - as with all the "old wives tales" on sexing, this one has a 50/50 chance of hitting it right, but is not based on any actual scientific process.

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

The girls peep higher than the boys but vent sexing is a sure way to know. When they are older, only the girls quack. Their legs are the same whether they are boys or girls.
