    I had two Pekin ducks, but put them on the river.

    You can tell the gender from their voices- the boys have a quiet squeaky voice like they've lost their voice, and the girls have a harsh loud QUACK.

    Hope this helps [​IMG]

    It shouldn't be much longer and you will be able to sex them by their tail feathers. Drakes (males) have a curled tail feather and hens do not.

    Quote:i know about the tail feather curl thing. jsut didn't know how old they had to be to tell. neither one of these has any indication of a curl right now.
