    You can vent sex ducklings almost from the hatch. Otherwise it's just voice sexing, and of course looking for the drake feather

    It's hard to tell unless you know what to look for.....Vent sexing can be done but you need experience..Also some breeds can be sexed by Bill colour in day old Ducklings...Or colour of down and behaviour is a great indication..Also size and certain other traits..:)
