    Hi everyone!

    I have 2 week old Khaki Campbell Ducklings and am wondering when you can start to tell whether they are a Drake or Hen?

    What are the signs or symptoms? Thanks!

    Way too young at two weeks. At around 4-7 weeks their voices can start changing. Ducks QUACK and drakes whasp almost a muttering sound. Did you get them from someone or a feed store?

    Telling before the voice change and adult feathers requires vent sexing. If you were in our area I could help with that. Then again if you are in our area you may have bought some of our ducklings as we supply a local feed store.
