    I am down to two ducks after something got the one I *knew* was a female a few nights ago. I grabbed this video of my two remaining ducks, to see if you guys might be able to help voice sex them. They are still pretty young and intermittently make baby duckling noises still, but I am pretty sure i have one drake and one duck. What do you think. I think the one farthest from the camera is a duck and the one closest is a drake.

    It sounds like a female. The other duck do not look like it made an sound. My first duck was an pekin.
     
  3. i would concur that the one closest to the camera is the drake and the other a girl.

    It does look that way...but the first louder "quack" is from the one in the back. I suppose I should have made the video longer! These two are funny...but eat a ridiculous amount of food and make SO much mess. The other noise in the background is a d'Anvers chick that wasn't happy about being kicked outside.
