Our flock of 5 hens and 5 drakes need to shrink by at least 3 drakes. I've raised these ducks from babies, and this will be very difficult for me, but we are raising these ducks for eggs, and the drakes are tormenting the females day and night. I don't want to loose the girls, so the boys must go, sad as it is. Can anyone direct me as to the best way to accomplish this with the least trauma to the duck, and me? We do plan to eat the meat,as we don't want their live go to waste, and want a quick painless death. Thank you.
