So today as I was petting and preening my sweet tolouse goose, Geraldine, I was watching my 5 ducks wandering around and I suddenly noticed that Samantha, my buff Duck has a curled tail feather!!! I ordered her from the hatchery as a female, and though they have a 95% gender identity rate, it looks like I have a drake after all. Is it at all possible that its still a girl with this stinking cruled feather, or is it definately a boy and now I should expect fertilized eggs? I have been suspicious about Samantha before because of her different voice and unusual size and ring around her neck, but I trusted that my gender selected girls was a girl. I'm a little dissapointed that I will have 150-200 fewer eggs a year now. Do other people eat fertilized duck eggs, is there any difference? Is it helpful to even have this duck if its a drake, or should I swap it for a egg layer? Maybe now I can get my chickens this spring since i'll be getting fewer eggs with a drake. UGH!
