    How can you tell ducklings apart? I am picking up 2 Pekin ducklings today from a farm store (once my home and yard are ready), and I'd like to know if there is a certain way to tell them apart. I'd like 2 females.

    No way really unless you know how to vent sex and they won't let you do that in the store. If you don't know how to vent sex I would not do it because you can really injure them. Trust me everyone wants girls but with straight runs it's anyone's guess what you will get. Good luck and please post pics :) we LOVE duckling pics.
