    Can you tell by the pictures if my ducks are male or female?

    You will have to go by voice of the duck or wait till all the feathering comes in and there will be a curly tail feather if male

    I can't but have you listened to their quacks? Loud quack = girl soft raspy quack = boy. You should be able to tell by now

    The Rouen possibly is a Drake because it's bill is green.

    The chicken is actually a cockerel. At least he’s trying to mate with the ducks. He’s too big for my babies and not big enough for the adults. He’s grown up with the ducks.

    We got them about 3/6 or so from TSC. I’m not sure of their ages.

    Could have been 2-3 days to a couple weeks were they tiny? Month an a half possibly really too young to say for sure. @MagpieDucks or @Table4Six are my go too for sexing.

    The Rouen is very likely a drake, as for the Pekins, you really need to listen to their voices. As stated previously, females make the loud, stereotypical quack, whereas drakes will make low rasps.
