12 week old ducks sex and breed?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello, we got 3 ducks from Tractor Supply 12 weeks ago. I'm think the two dark, tall ones are Runners? I'm not sure in the light one and we have no idea on the sex. They are so comical and a lot of fun! Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.

The fawn and white one looks like a runner too.  When you pick them up do they quack or do they make a low grunt noise?  That is the way I always tell if their male or female.  The female quacks loudly and the male makes the low grunt noise.  

 

 

They are very pretty ducks and I hope you enjoy them.  Let me know how many girls and boys you have?

I'll have to check again but I think they all quack loudly. All girls would be good!

The one with the grey head has a male saxony look. Odd that TSC would have them though.
