    Hi, how can I tell the gender of my Golden Star Hybrid Ducks. I have two. One seems to be bigger and louder, and mounts the other one. I think they are both laying one egg per day. The lady at the feed store didn't mention what they were when I bought them and now I can't tell. Thanks!

    If it lays eggs, it is female.

    If you only have the two ducks and are getting two eggs a day, I'd say that they were both females. I have no experince sexing ducks by their traits, but wanted to say welcome to BYC.
