    I got these ducks about 2 weeks ago and need some help sexing them. I was told they are "half-grown" but I would say they are nearly full grown. (If they are only half I'm going to have some HUGE ducks).

    Any help you can give will be appreciated!

    If memory serves me correctly...you can't sex scovies by looks. But you can by the hissing. I THINK it's males hiss???? I'm sure some scovy owners will respond soon!

    PS...good looking birds...for scovies! (I'm an indian runner fan myself)....nice looking guiny legs too!

    My hens make a sound like "queek queek", the drakes hiss. The drakes have alot of the red bumps around the face.

    You cant even buy a drake here unless it is a baby duck. I had to grow out a drake for my hens.
