    How old are they? Not the best picture, but if I had to guess from that shot, I'd say 1 male, 2 females.

    How old are they? It looks like 3 hens if they are adults. There are two ways to sex ducks; drakes have curly tail feathers, hens don't. Also, hens will quack loudly, whereas drakes almost whistle.

    By your pic, I would guess 1 drake and two ducks (hens). The one closest to fence, looks to curl in tail feather.. and by the sounds you say they are making...

    Quote:Well then you have answered your own question. The "Squeeker" is the drake, the other 2 are hens.
