    Hi all!

    Well, I found the first little drake feathers today! Hehe, two cute little tiny curls on the bottoms of both Kupo and Momo. I had already figured out who the boys were because they both lost their voices, although Momo lost his weeks before Kupo did.

    Both the girls are still loud, so I'm still pretty sure they are girls.

    And the boys are right at 3 months right now, probably hatched on March 21. I had thought the drake feathers would come in at 4 months, but maybe they are early. Just wanted to post in case anyone else wonders when to look for drake feathers!

    Good to know, thanks! My ducklings are still less than two months old and are feathering in, but I'm looking forward to spotting that curly feather! The males already have quieter voices though, so I'm pretty sure the hatchery sexing was right (yay!). [​IMG]
