Listen to his/her quack. Low and raspy are boys and loud and higher pitch are girls. Also, I have a 13 week old drake who just got his curly feathers in. In a couple weeks, if it's a boy, you should notice curly feathers on his/her tail. Hope this helps!! Beautiful duck!

thank you! She/he is pretty quite unless i pick him up. will do tomorrow to see if i can tell the difference.
That's how my drake is too. :) Also, If you kinda look under the feathers near the tail you might notice curly feathers starting to grow in already. :)

Usually girls are more load than boy. If it never quacks or is very quiet I would say it's a boy but I don't know for sure until you see curly feathers. :)

Some of mine won't quack until I pick them up and carry them away from the flock. My Pekins were very trusting, and even though they didn't actually like to be picked up, it didn't set them off quacking, either.
