    That tail area looks pretty smooth on the duck. No curly drake feather, but when they are molting those can be absent. Your best indication of sex on that duck is going to be what it sounds like. Does it make a loud QUACK noise or make lots of different sounds? Or does it make a quiet, raspy sounding peepy quack?

    If it is LOUD and makes lots of different noises, it is a girl.

    I say too young on the silkie, female on the Jap and the (pure) Swedish duck is a hen.
