    I have a 9 week old black Runner Duck and we are not sure the gender? She was supposed to be a girl but we are starting to question if she really is, beachside of her voice. Can you even tell at 9 weeks?

    I can voice sex hatchlings but it is different sexing peeps than quacks. I think you should hear a difference by now. The hens quack like a duck but the drakes sound more like croaking frogs. My hens are quacking by 9 weeks. If in doubt vent sexing is a sure thing.
