    I'm on day 2 of new WH ducklings. When and how do I take the sex color tape off their legs? Any chance it will just fall off as they grow?

    Ours did not have tape, they had tiny little bands that we removed on day two. Those little legs grow fast, fast fast! Be careful.

    Our ducklings had tape. The paper we got with them said that it would fall off after a few days, and it did

    I've had tape it needs to come off soon they grow fast. With the help of someone holding duckling you can pry tape off.
