KHAKI CAMPBELL DRAKE QUESTION

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

My 12 month old KC drake seems to be going thru a phase.  He has lost his 2 little black curls over his tail feathers and has also lost the green sheen on his head.  What is this about?  

 

Also, can a ducklings gender be detected by the why his quacking sounds?  Age 6 weeks now.  thanks

I think that's called the eclipse phase - sounds normal to me.

 

You may be able to hear the ducking voice cracking into a quack or honk at 6 weeks, and that would be female.  Otherwise either it's a little early, or you could have a drakeling.

Please PM me, or use @Amiga in the message if you would like to hear from me soon.
