New Mallard Mom. - Page 2

Yes, girls will make a full range of noises lots very similar to the males... it's just that while males *might occasionally* let out a louder quack noise, only girls will let out a string of quacks... and usually they do it when they are upset, like not being able to see you, lol...

Until she starts laying, there is nothing different between caring for a girl or boy... but when she does start laying eggs, she will need either layer feed or free choice oyster shell... not enough calcium when laying could cause egg binding...
