How accurate is Ideal Farms at sexing?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I was looking for a companion for my male Magpie & decided on a Buff Crested from Ideal ( they are closer to me in Houston) I ordered a male, but now I'm freaked out that I got a female. Keep in mine it is just 10 days old   lol... Any hints on what to start looking for at a very young age? I love it so much that I will probably keep it no matter what. My issue is I'm in a town home and a female is a noisy egg laying mess for me. I had 2 boys as house ducks and it worked perfect.

If they say it's a male, it's a male. Vent sexing ducks is much easier than chicks and there's no way to mistake a female for a male smile.png

He's a cutie! I love crested ducks but the problems they can get made me steer clear of them. I bet he'll be super cute as an adult too smile.png
