    Ok i bought two ducklings and grafted them under my broody hen on 24th April 2015 when they were a few days old.

    Now these ducklings are almost 6 months (23 weeks) old .
    They are close to age of maturity and about to lay eggs in a couple of weeks.

    I have heard both of them quacking loud on different occasions.
    No drake feather on either of them.

    If they're quacking loudly, they're probably females. I don't know enough about ducks to tell you whether they'll probably go broody.
