    Hello,
    We are in Everett and have a flock of 5 week Magpies. We have not sexed them and wish to keep 4 females. But I do not want the males to end up on the dinner table. Any suggestions?
     
  2. Grab the mother (ie a female) of the ducklings. Listen to the loud quack. Them grab a drake. Listen to the quiet, raspy quack.
    Repeat with ducklings, picking out the boys whom will have a raspy quack and the girls who will be loud

    Only thing you can do is put it in your ad or post and hope for the best. have you posted on the BYC buy sell trade thread? and [​IMG] and what state is Everett in? [​IMG] also you can go to the "Where am I Where are you", scroll till you come to your state post there also.
