    Simon is about three months. Chance it's a pullet? I got Simon back from the person I gave him to after he got really bad frostbite and lost two toes. Would like to keep Simon if it's a girl.

    Where did Simon come from? If from a hatchery, she's a red sex link and a definite pullet.

    If a mixed breed, she still looks female to me. A bit of a pink comb, not not much for 3 months.

    Pirate's a cutie, and also looks to be female.

    Your duck is a duck, and I'm sure it's a fine one at that. Gender....I've no blessed clue.

    agree with donrae If your duck turns out to be a drake, keep him away from your chicken pullets. A drake can decide to breed a chicken with damaging results.
