    [​IMG]!Wow! What an experience this was - exciting. I have always purchased ducklings from the feed store, and there is a lot of work entailed in keeping them clean and happy. It is so much easier letting mama do the job; she is better at it too! Tee hee hee. I tried to determine their sex ... all females I concluded... but being my first time trying, after viewing Metzger's video, well I'll just have to wait and see how successful my gender assignments were.[​IMG]
