I agree the curl at the tail and the emerging color point to it being a drake

If anyone is still around... I have 3 new Khakis that I was told are around 9 months old and all girls. That are basically indistinguishable to me still except that one has orange feet and walks a bit differently. I don't have a good picture yet, but they are small and sold dark brown with some lighter feathers in the wings. A couple of them seem to have a collar like effect in coloring around the neck, but none have particularly dark heads. No tail curls. All seem to quack... By looks they seem to all be female, but I've only gotten 2 eggs per morning from them and two were trying to mate this morning. I know that's not clear evidence of having a male, but I'm wondering, if by 9 months old, should I be able to tell confidently yet by looks if one was a drake?

Orange feet would make me think Drake.....if you can get a pic I'll look at them and should be able to tell you.

If she has a raspy voice it is a drake if she a load quack it is a hen.

I am pleased to report that my Khakis are all girls! I found 4 eggs for three ducks this morning in their pen, I must have missed one yesterday? Plus they all have some impressive voices for little ducks!
