Almost 2 months old female duck lost its voice? :( help needed

Thread Starter 
My 2 months old female duck has lost her voice to whispers. She haven't eaten anything odd and is acting normal otherwise. I am v worried. Any advice?

Sounds like you have yourself a boy lol does your duck have a little feather that curls take a picture and post it maybe we can help you that way

The others are correct, this is the age were the adult voice comes in. What makes you think it is a female? In many breeds the drakes will have different coloring, so if you post a picture we may be able to tell by the feathering if it is male.

 

Just a side note, the curly tale feather, or drake curl, doesn't normally show until about 4 months old.

I would say it's a good thing a female duck lost its voice. 😃

What breed of duck? as the others have said if a raspy undertone has occurred, quite possible it's a drakelet. I raised my Pekin in the house, all of a sudden the pool(hey, cheap, waterproof brooder lol) starting quacking like crazy.. i had 5 ducks and 1 drake!
