    We have three 3 week old Rouen/Khaki Campbell ducklings. Someone told me you could tell their sex by their shape. Is that true??

    You have to wait till they get feathers and the males will have a curly feather at their tail
     
  3. They need to mature a bit more ..:).....At around 6 to 8 weeks they will either QUAcK or sound raspy..;)....Drakes are raspy...Hens quack......At around 4 months they will molt and that is when Drakes will grow the tail curl....:)....Colour also can tell the sex early...:)


    Cheers!
