Ive had 4 call ducks since they were 2 weeks old last Spring. One of them I swore was a female, but it had severe angel wing so the curl on the tail was hard to see because all of his/her feathers were a mess. Back then I didn't know how to sex ducklings so one day when I saw a slight curl, we assumed Sammy was male. After several attempts to cure his/her angel wing, it didn't work so I spent months thinking maybe he/she was male. Now I'm not so sure. He/she has stopped getting in the ponds to bathe. That's been a problem because, with the exception of the last couple days, we've had huge rainfalls here and everything is muddy!! I even put a snow sled with water in it thinking he/she didn't want to get in the ponds with the bigger ducks. Still nothing. I've bathed him/her by hand a few times because we had severe mud here for a long time, but bathing him/her myself has been difficult. The pic of the wings was taken after attempting to give him/her a bath! SO, I have two questions. One is what should I do about his/her stubbornness to bathe and how do I sex adult calls? This is another reason why I question Sammy's sex. I think I hatched out another male call. The black one looks just like Sammy when I brought him/her home. But, this baby could be anything. I'm just thinking maybe it's Sammy's because of so many similarities and this baby is so much tinier than everyone else!
