    I have three five week old Rouen ducklings and one, today, has started to have a definite quack as well as the peeping of the others... does that mean that it's a female? Do the girls quack first? Interestingly, it's the largest of the three ducklings...

    Yeah. Girls have that loud quack and males become more monotone and just end up with a raspy peep noise.

    Good! I'm really hoping one of the others is female too-- not a good thing to have two drakes with one duck [​IMG]
