I know less than nothing about sexing ducks, but on the photo host front, I use http://www.dropshots.com. I don't use them a lot as I only post photos here, but the uploads are quick, tags are easy to copy and I haven't ever noticed advertising - I'm sure it is there, but not in a way that impedes my use of the site at all.

Your duckies are very cute.. shame it sounds like there are a lot of boys though. Are you able to get another lot in this season?

Awesome, tank you, I'll give it a go. I also only use it for posting pics on here, so don't need anything flash!

I had been in contact with someone locally who also has silver appleyards, so I might try for another lot if the stars align (i.e. broodies fit in with timing and whether that person has eggs still available). We'll see....

Lovely babies, looking great. I'm loving the ducks more than chickens now and I can't keep up with the demand for their eggs! We had a hen raise orphan baby ducks tucked under her when they were 3 days old. She did a great job.

They did not listen to her at all and would usually wander off as a troop in the opposite direction to wherever she wanted them to go. She hasn't been broody since.

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. :lol:
