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!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost

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
