    Hi i have two Campbell ducklings they are nearly 4 week old so not living outside yet. Any ideas on what sex they are? The yellow one is bigger and has a quackier squeak the brown one is smaller is squeakier and follows the yellow one around constantly and its 100% more scared than the yellow one. Today the brown one hissed at me when I went to get it out for a splash in the bath. (They love love the bath) any ideas?

    Way to young to sex just now, other than vent sexing. @chickens really is right, those aren't Campbells. I'd say you have a Pekin and a Swedish. How long have you had them? They look much younger that 4 weeks to me.

    I originally wanted a pekin so that’s not a problem, I was told they was 2 and half week old and are khaki Campbell and a white Campbell. Iv had them nearly two week. They aren’t really tiny il show another picture. The person I got them off had about 30 in a hutch outside with no heat! I did quite a bit of google research before getting these so I was really shocked!

    Welcome to BYC, your ducklings are adorable!
    Can you make a vide of them, upload it YouTube or Vimeo, then copy and paste the link here?

    You can't sex them till they quack or rasp..
    Hens quack loud and Drakes are raspy..The one is possibly a KC but the other is a Pekin or white layer.

    The brown one sounds squeakie and is always quacking and alway follows the yellow one, the yellow one is louder but doesn’t make much noise and is bigger than the brown one

    Khaki Campbell is KC and I'm seeing a flesh bill so think a White layer.
