Hi I just bought 2 blue swedish ducks and was told they are both boys but just wondering how to tell they are so sweet and nice it does not really matter what they are just wondering how to tell

Are they adults? If so, the males will have a low raspy quack and a curly tail feather. Females will have a loud quack and no curly feathers. big_smile

No problem! One thing, mine are in moult right now so all of my drakes have no curly feather. If you dont see one, dont automatically assume they are females. wink

Drakes do bond, I have 4 and they are inseperable!
