    Ducks will quack soon, if they aren't already, drakes still make baby squeaks at this age. Until the drake feather shows up, you can't be sure. I go by the sounds they make and I've always been correct.

    Thats the thing. I am 100% sure a different one that I have is a drake and it quacks. I mean REALLY loud QUACK and the others sort of hiss and you can hardly hear them. [​IMG]

    Do you see the dark brown duck in the 2nd pic? That is my drake. He has a shiny green head, he tries to mate and so on. AND HE QUACKS! The others voice is starting to change. I don't know how but I'm going to try to post a video. It will probably be a link to YouTube.

    Boy, it's a hard call. Maybe you have to wait for egg laying or that curly tail -- [​IMG] My females have all started with a definite "quack quack quack", but I did have one drake that had a quack that was just slightly lower than the girls and he quacked a lot. But he did have a curly tail and was definitely a he.
