    [​IMG] I desperately want the Ancona duckling on the right to be a boy. Can anyone tell by looking at it? Does the white tail feathers change anything? What about how the tail sticks out more than hers? The left one is a girl. If I can't get a boy out of my batch I'm going to have to purchase a boy from someone here please let me know if you have any Ancona ducklings you can sell me if I can't get a boy..

    Unless you know how to vent sex, you can't determine gender at this age.

    Once they are 9-10 weeks you should be able to voice sex them

    How hard is it to vent sex duckliings? I am afraid to hurt them. I have a book that makes it look easy but I have not felt confident in trying it.
