I have 3 khaki Campbell ducklings now 7 weeks old. I’ve *read* drakes have darker necks, and will have greenish blue bills with dark or black beans and females will develop slate grey bills with same color or carmel beans. Can’t figure it out. Can’t figure out the voice difference either. Input please and thank you!

They’re beautiful!
I believe at 7 weeks, you might be able to determine the sex. My khakI male has a very dark head and curly black tail feathers.

the quack would also determine gender....the males have a very distinctive raspy voice.

I can see why you are having trouble, yours are tough. I have been able to tell with mine by the feathers above their tails. Khaki boys have dark, solid colored feathers and girls have lighter, two-toned feathers (see photos of my first pair below). So, my best guess is that you have three boys. Even then though your one on the left looks like it has two-toned dark feathers?? If they are boys, their voices will change soon (if they are still making peeping sounds) to raspy. Girl quacks are hard to miss. They are really loud and funny. If you post a video which includes them making noise we should be able tell you for sure.
