wats the best way to sex duckings i need info + details please
I don't know since I don't have my ducks yet, but interesting question.
check the top of the duck thread. there is a whole topic on that.
Metzer Farms also has a good video on this at their site. It worked for me.
I was going to suggest their video as well.
I've used Metzer farms as well, I thought I knew for sure, now I'm not so sure. After 2 they all start looking the same. I even bought me a crafters magnify glass to help me see better. But then there is the old stand by of "Wait and see" when their voices change and rather a male gets a curly Q tail, or stays straight. Here is the link to Metzers Farm on Sexing Ducklings http://www.metzerfarms.com/SexingVideo.cfm?CustID=166717
Please be very careful if you do this. You can injure your duckling very badly, if you don't know what you are doing. I'm all for not doing it and let nature take its course. You will know when they are about 7 weeks, because of their voices. What's the rush any way. It's a different story with commercial breeders that sell day sexed old ducklings. For us home breeders not a big issue.
