    They walk, they swim. They're ducks and they are cute. Just my thoughts.

    Can someone that knows how to tell by sound better than I do listen to the first video and give me a idea of sex of the one quacking?

    @Miss Lydia do you have a idea I can’t tell.

    Cute! Your ducklings are one week older than mine. I am hoping to get mine outside for a bit next week.

    I only hear one duckling quacking, They're the same age as my Rouens~ IMG_7647.JPG
    At this age you should start hearing the 'Quack' At the end of their peeps. I'd give the other 2 another week, If those don't have the quack then you most likely have 2 drakes and 1 hen.

    You have at least one female. She’s the one that’s the loudest in the video. To me when they are that age, girls have a sort of bark to their peep.:gig

    The other loudish peep is a male. I can’t tell on the third one. But I’d guess male too since it’s pretty obvious when they are girls. Do you have any guesses?
