I've read many diff ways of sexing ducks but I'm confused, some of them are contradictory when I look at these 2.
Can anyone help with this please?
1 of them definitely quacks but can never tell which one as they only do it when snuggled up together.

I've just gone back to it to take a pic so...
First time incubating quail eggs.
