    I think I have 2 girls and 2 boys. Are they Rouen or mallards though? The girls have brown back feathers and qauck and the boys make a weezy noise and have a bluish hue to the back feathers near the tail feathers. About a 3 or 4 inch patch. Also girls are getting white on feathers but the boys not yet.

    pic1 you can see the dark back here

    Pic 2 you can see the brownish colored feathers on back

    I think they're rouen drakes...maybe 1 hen.

  3. I believe those are rouens,

    However, we can't tell the sex because, by looks, we have to see a little curly tail feather.
    But, you can listen to their voices. Males are quiet and raspy, females loud and clear. If you have to think, then your doing it wrong, lol. It's really really obvious.
