    Okay, I understand that caponizing is a tricky topic. I ask that if you are not adding helpful or informative input, please refrain from posting "it's cruel". Simply bring your input to the table and allow me to decide whether it's cruel or impractical. [​IMG] Thanks!

    I do understand that if it's anything like rooster caponizing, it is invasive, but is it really the same procedure? I understand that drakes have a penis, but caponizing is the removing of testicles. Are the testicles of a drake, in the same location of a rooster?

    I know there is a thread that mentioned this, but I didn't want to hijack it.

    I think that drakes are beautiful, but I do not want to deal with the same hassle of that infamous sex drive. I would love to have a more 50/50 sex ratio without having to put my ducks through the stress.
