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!

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

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