Welcome to BYC.   I think the hens quawk and the males hiss.  But to be sure  please post on  the "Duck thread,"   they really know ducks, and I don't. Also males usually have one tail feather that curls.

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
