    My 2 months old female duck has lost her voice to whispers. She haven't eaten anything odd and is acting normal otherwise. I am v worried. Any advice?

    The others are correct, this is the age were the adult voice comes in. What makes you think it is a female? In many breeds the drakes will have different coloring, so if you post a picture we may be able to tell by the feathering if it is male.

    Just a side note, the curly tale feather, or drake curl, doesn't normally show until about 4 months old.

    I would say it's a good thing a female duck lost its voice. [​IMG]

    What breed of duck? as the others have said if a raspy undertone has occurred, quite possible it's a drakelet. I raised my Pekin in the house, all of a sudden the pool(hey, cheap, waterproof brooder lol) starting quacking like crazy.. i had 5 ducks and 1 drake!
