This is cupcake. We call her a girl, but we dont really know. Lol weve always done chickens. This is our first time with ducks. They chirp and make a weird purring sound when you walk up to pet them. The pekin is almost 6 weeks.

It's nearly impossible to tell by looking at this age. The best way to tell right now would be to listen to their voice. If she sounds like she haa a hoarse honking sound starting to creep in, it's probably a girl. Drakes tend to get their voices later, so if it's still peeping just like it was as a little duckling, it might be a male.
So this is where my John Hancock goes? Oh wait, John Hancock? Pffft...it's Herbie Hancock ;]
