    Duck hatched in mid January. I assume it's a mix of duck.

    I'd say it's a hen.

    It is to early to tell by a photo...It was only hatched in January?.....Those are its first feathers....It will molt those at around 4 months old and the adult feathers will come in....If it is a Drake, its curls in the tail will also come in.....Best way is voice sexing.....Does it QUACK or sound Raspy?.....Hens quack Drakes sound like they have a cold.....


    Cute Duck......;)


    Cheers!

    Thank you!
    I'm not too sure. The duck hatched from my friend's ducks(below) and she has quite a few breeds. Campbells, Perkins, Runners, Rouens maybe?

    Thanks you both.
    Yesterday when the duck couldn't find its chicken friends duck made an actual quack. So maybe it's a female. :)
