    So I hatched four welsh harlequins (from Metzer Farms eggs) with my 3 yr daughter about 3/4 months ago and hooray three girls and one boy (according to bill coloring) !!!! WELL, turns out two are boys and two are girls. I was so sad to see that second little curly feather pop out. So I have two questions
    1. Do I really need to get rid of one of the boys? I have read that they will harrass my girlies to no end and I am worried [​IMG] Does anyone have any good experiences with this? Or any other suggestions so we don't have to give him away?

    2. My daughter and I dearly love all our babies and I can't imagine culling one or giving him away for meat. Does anyone here want a new Drake or know someone who does? I am located in Santa Cruz Ca

    I don't know how that works. I, too, ended up with 2 and 2. I am hoping for the best. Right now, it looks almost like they've paired up so, maybe it'll work. If not, I guess I'll be looking for more girls. *sigh*

    Some ducks will pair up but you never know what they're thinking, and it might change from year to year. [​IMG]

    Hope it works out.
