Definitely should be able to voice sex them. I usually start hearing the voices changing around 6-8 weeks and their more “adult” voice by about the 12-13 week mark. If they make a loud sharp quack, female. If they make a quacking sound that’s quiet and raspy, they’re males. There’s quite a bit of variation in voices, too, so it can be a bit more difficult when you don’t have both to compare to each other. :)

Bill color has me concerned that all may be drakes. Any quacking or do all have a whispery/raspy voice. If the latter, they are drakes.
I was thinking the same thing… I do believe they are all drakes. All three hatched from the same batch so I thought that was unusual. Is it cruel to have three drinks without a hen?

three drakes, looks like you have a little bachelor flock! as long as you have no hens they will not fight, but if you bring in hens they will become aggressive with each other. it’s definitely not cruel to keep just drakes, they’ll be super happy being with just their brothers, i miss having an all-drake flock ❤

that’s great! if you ever do want more, i recommend getting only drakes. as soon as i brought in girls my drakes started fighting even though they lived their whole lives as best friends
