    Well crap. So after going out today and watching this new duck I just got I think that my full grown hen may be a boy I bought this specifically because I was told it was a hen. When we went to pick it up the thing wouldn't make a noise but didn't seem to have any drake feathers, so I brought it home. I'm new to this voice sexing thing so I was wondering if you can help me out? I took a video and uploaded it here: Its a cayuga and I know they are pretty quiet - my other one doesn't seem to make any loud noises either but I think maybe to young still to voice sex. This one being four months old should be easier. . . I've listened to other duck sounds online and it seems I may have gotten the wrong sex . . . she had several hens and two males. Am I just really unlucky? I hope she'll take him back . . . I really don't need any more boys.

    Sorry for the shaky cam - he/she would NOT stand still.

    Today I also noticed it looks like it has drake feathers - and I swear they were no there yesterday!

    PICS:

    Please help me ASAP! As I'm 90% sure this is a boy if it is I want to trade it out for one of the others before she sales them all.
