Should I vent sex ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I'm getting my 4 baby ducks in a few weeks. I could only order straight run from my local feed mill. Oviously I'm hoping for all females or only 1 male. I have been watching some YouTube videos on vent sexing. I'm not sure if I should or not. Kinda nervous about it or am I over thinking.

It is pretty easy with practice. Once you see the boy part it is certainly a boy. The girls are harder to sex so you can keep trying different times if you are worried about over stretching the vent. Lack of a boy part could be a girl but if you see two bumps you can confirm it is a girl. I do bantam ducklings at about 2 weeks because they are so tiny at hatching.
