I have three little muscovy duckies and they have just started flapping around and getting a little lift. I need to clip their wings as i do not live in a rural area. I know that I can't do it yet because their feathers are still new and may still have blood in them. I have an area where they are enclosed, but isn't the biggest, so I want to get them clipped asap. At how many weeks should the wings be ready to clip? As for the how part, I know the method and everything, buuuuuuttt... They are not the cuddliest things and are getting quite large and strong, are there any recommendations on how I can restrain them to clip their wings? Could I possibly put a towel over them and hold them down? Also another quick question. I have no idea of the sexes of any of them, but I am sure whatever they are, they are all the same because they are all pretty much exactly the same size and I'm told that by three weeks I should be able to tell size difference, and they are are way past that. Are there any ways I can tell now, without comparison with each other obviously, what sex they are? They all still peep quite a lot and they do hiss and huff a lot [mostly a my cats]. I anyone would like more details about anything I'm happy to help. thanks.
