They both sound for sure like girls to me. Boys are much quieter and they don't make quacks like that, it's all quiet raspy noises.

Thank you. I thought so and a video just got bumped up too. But they confuse me because their tails look like they are curling up which I thought meant boy. They are still young though between 8-9 weeks I believe. Depending how long they sat at TSC before I bought them. Could be slightly older

Drake feathers are usually just a few that curl up, if it's the whole tail I don't think that means anything?

You can see my drake's tail feathers in the middle there. That's from before he got his full adult feathering. 7-8 weeks old I believe. But to my knowledge it varies a lot when they grow in.

Again in the middle of the picture, so now that he's older he has two and they're curlier. About 22 weeks.

You can probably find clearer pictures, those are just the best I have on hand. I hope that helps!

First video is a girl for sure. Absolutely 100% certain it's a girl. Couldn't load the second one.
So this is where my John Hancock goes? Oh wait, John Hancock? Pffft...it's Herbie Hancock ;]
