voice sexing some 8 week old ducks

If someone with some experience can tell me if the louder duck in the audio is male or female it would be much appreciated! 

 

They are 8 week old Khaki/Cascade mixes and are almost the same size as the adult hens.  When approached, there are the 2 sounds heard in the recording; the louder duck sound mentioned above, and the one in the background with the more solid whistle or peep-like tone.  My reading has me guessing the more solid tone is female, but I am unsure as neither is noticeably louder than the other (unless recorded at different distances from a microphone...) 

 

Thanks!

You'd be better sexing them with photos.
