    Erm well, yes....I do.
    It is better demonstrated or shown with pictures rather than described. One carefully opens up the vent & if there's a little willy (looks like a little worm) it's a male [​IMG]
    Have you tried a search online for photos.....or even youtube sometimes has "how to" films.

    Oh yes....before long you'll be able to sex them by voice.....when they get past peeping the duck makes a definite "QUACK" but he drake has a more rasping sound.[​IMG]

    If it quacks, it's a girl. My pekin girl started quacking at 2 weeks old. [​IMG]
