Welcome to BYC    you won't see a real curl drake feather till much later like 3 months or older the only way to sex them now would be vent sexing and if not experienced they can be injured so I don't recommend it, why not just enjoy them while they are babies it won't take long before you can tell by quack and tail feather.  Pics when you can.and Congrats on your babies.
