    I know I have 1 female by the quack, honk. One is starting a quack, but it sounds different. The other 2 still squeak.

    What do you think of their tail feathers? I see 1 maybe 2 with drake feather.

    I think 1, 2 and 4 may be drakes.

    Oh NO! That is not good. So far they are to young for the "hanky panky", but I will have to do something in the future if there are 3 boys. My children will be devastated.
