Yeah mine had a boy voice and had a little tail feather curling up from real early one.

I've never heard of voice-sexing being wrong, but it's not so much loud vs. quiet as it is a completely different sound. I mean, most girls can be quite loud, lol, but it's like a honking noise, almost, where the boys are kind of froggy. A lot of the time they are a similar volume, and some ducks just don't vocalize as much as others. Also, even the quacks my girls make differ by breed. I can tell by listening whether it's Roxy the runner, Ruby the mallard, or one of the Welshies. So even if your duck doesn't sound exactly like the females you hear online, if it has that loud honking quality to it instead of a raspy frogginess, then you've got a girl.
Have you listened to this yet? http://www.majesticwaterfowl.org/artquacks.htm It might help. :) 

Momma to 8 ducks - Rocky, Dexter (male mallards);  Ruby Sue (female mallard); Tony (male buff); Roxy (female fawn and white runner); Dorothy, Blanche, and Rose (female Welsh Harlequins); and 2 kitties, Maggie and Fuffy-cat.

RIP Bullwinkle and Turkey-duck :(
