how to tell a male from female adult Crested ducks

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I was given adults crested ducks but it's winter now, so no eggs to let me know if I have females or males?

Is it their sound, colors, etc...

Thank you,

Lise

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!

The little curl up in the tail is a dead give away in males. ūüėä
