    Duckling sexing is pretty accurate, but only if done by people who actually know what they're doin. Where do you plan on getting the ducklings from?

    Thanks for reply to my forum question. I am thinking about buying from mxxxxxfarm. This online farm offer selling of minimum 2 duckling. I just wanna have them for forever ducks for my family. Do you have any other place online suggestion? I am interested in "Indian Runner" or "Silky Duck"

    I have never heard of them. Lots of places have runners, not sure about sillies
    Good hatcherys are cackle, holderrreads, purely poultry, and Metzer farms.

    You'll never find a place that is 100% accurate all the time. If they tell you they are I highly suggest you not buy from them. Most hatcheries are 90% accurate.

    There are a few breeds that have indicators at hatch that help with sexing. The Welsh Harliquin have the bill color thing but it's not 100% either. I believe Metzer's Golden 300 are also sexable by down color at hatch.
