    I'm two weeks into raising ducks and I was wondering if someone could, if they wouldn't mind, help me identify the breed and maybe sex of these little quackers. I know Leonard, the crested one, is a crested mallard or created rouen but I have no idea which; additionally I knew the risk of getting him (I'm using the masculine pronouns for both of them until I know what sex it is or until it lays an egg) before I got him. I have no idea what Shelly,the other one, is, but he has a ton of personality. [​IMG]

    The only way I know that mine are boys is because they have a curled tail but of course you would have to wait until they grow feathers sorry:/

    You should be able to voice sex at 4-8 weeks. Long before they get a drake feather

    One in front looks like a Rouen but that's just a guess. Better pics would help greatly.
