    Hey everyone,

    So here is another one I thought I would toss up and see what other people think.

    This is my 5 week old pet Call Duck "Lucky" the only one who hatched out of a 12.

    Drake or Hen?

    Hmm, at 5 weeks I don't think you'd be able to go by a drake feather yet, but you may be able to go by voice [​IMG] Does he/she quack loudly (not all the time yet, just sometimes)?

    Yeah i would listen to his voice. If its deep sounding its a drake, if its loud and annoying its a hen. [​IMG]
