    I only want females, I want no males at all, I know there is no guarentee but still, I would love to have a little group of female geese and ducks...I look on the hatchling internet sites and they never sell sexed duckling or gossling, yet they sell sexed chicks...Does anyone know where I could get a small group of female only babies? And if I cant find any sites that sell sexed babies and end up going to the local feed store in the Spring, how can sex them myself?

    Hmm there must be hatcheries that do, i know i can access sexed gosling's/ducklings.. heck, i just did recently, ordering two buff ducklets. Where have you checked?

    Now i do know it'll depend on breed NOT all breeds are sold sexed, my Muscovy the main breed of duck i keep for example is hard to get that way, if even possible at all short of private breeders actually.
