    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
