As a follow-up to my post yesterday 'bout how to sex Pekin ducklings, went back to TSC today and attempted to vent sex 5 ducklings. I say attempted, I watched the Metzer video on Youtube that goes into detail 'bout how it's done. Left my eyeglasses in the truck and was too lazy I guess to go back out in the rain to get them. A shopper there admiring the ducks and chicks was willing to offer a second opinion on my guess-work so only time will tell how many of what sex they are. I do plan on raising some off these so hope I don't end up with all drakes! Got to the checkout and the cashier asked how many I had in the box. When I replied "5" she informed me that in my great state of Virginia they can sell no less than 6 ducklings or chicks at a time. I guess I shouldn't be surprised at all that government control has entended to almost every phase of our existence! So... guess that I need help in deciding how many ducklings I actually need. On the bright side, the extra one may be the only hen in the bunch!!
