Hi Duckie friends! A few questions on Cayuga's (didn't find much on BYC). At what age will I be able to tell the sex? Some googled sites say 10-12 weeks, others say 7-8 months for the curl to show. Regarding their sound - aren't they normally quieter than Pekin and Welsh Harlequins? My 2 gorgeous Cayuga's do more of a low "murmur" than a loud, obnoxious QUACK like the Pekin and WH, leading me to think they are males. However - all the ducks do this little low duck murmur more of the day than not. I am hoping for at least 1 female. Regarding laying, IF either or both of them are female, about when will they start to lay? Both the WH and Cayuga's are SOOOO MUCH bigger than the kakhi's where last year at the same age. At 6 weeks of age, they were almost completely feathered out.
