    Watched a really good video on vent sexing on youtube, and thought I would have a try on my baby runners. I have 5 and from my amateur attempts, I think there are 4 ducks and just 1 drake! Only time will tell if I was right...so here it is for posterity!

    Was the video done by Metzer Farms? They have one on there website and I thought I was very good. So I went out and tried the technique. I was amazed how easy it was. Way easier then chickens. I have yet to figure that one out.
