    Hrllo, can someone identify what breen and sex they are?
    Sorry for quality, it is taken while they are in small, temporary cage.

    The one in the far back looks like a female. I cant tell with the other two...if they have a curled feather on their tail, they are male. Also, when they quack, a loud distinct quack is a female. A raspy whispering sound is a male.

    They look like Swedish or Swedish mixes, and I don't see any curly tail feathers. But I agree, the quack is a very important determining factor.

    Their quacks are low pitched. Also they are molting, showing green, white and even violet plumage.
    EDIT: I think they are still immature and shows little diphormism

    They almost look Muscovy-ish. How old are they? Very pretty though.
