    I need to learn how to sex ducklings. I hatched 10 ducklings for myself and only got three females out of the bunch. So now I have seven Black East Indies drakes that need a new homes. They are three months old now and they are free to anyone willing to pick them up. Sorry I cannot ship. No females available. I live in Northern Ohio. E-mail or PM me if interested.

    I just picked up 4 of these, and WOW. Not only great people to deal with, there animals are given the best of the best!!!

    These are my 1st BEI ducks, they are a little skidish with me right now, but after a few min of talking and petting them they cool right down.
    I brought them home and kept them in a small cage and put that in the big pen with the rest of the ducks and they all seemed friendly and didnt make much noise. I opened the door on the BEI kennel and they walked right out and jumped right in the pond....its been bliss since.

    THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!! [​IMG]

    Wow! I had the opposite situation, ending up with 3 BEI drakes and 6 ducks. I hope the boys can keep up.

    dang. i never seen a duck that color. will the color change at all as the duck matures?
    also, these are like show ducks? or are they to be found naturally in your area?
