Do I Have a pair or both females ?

Ok i bought two ducklings and grafted them under my broody hen on 24th April 2015 when they were a few days old.

 

Now these ducklings are almost 6 months (23 weeks) old .

They are close to age of maturity and about to lay eggs in a couple of weeks.

 

I have heard both of them quacking loud on different occasions.

No drake feather on either of them.

If they're quacking loudly, they're probably females. I don't know enough about ducks to tell you whether they'll probably go broody.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
