    My pekins are 6 weeks and one seems to be getting a bit quieter than the other. I haven't heard a distinct quack or rasp quack and I know time will tell me what I have. I was hoping those with more experience might be able to tell me if I have a female?

    Hard to say at this point. My boy, Bean, has a raspy voice but he is very talkative. I could not get a bead on the quieter duck.
