Adopted this duckling about five weeks ago from someone that made an impulse purchase at atwoods. They were keeping him inside in one of those 16 inch tall hamster/gerbil play cages. Duck and owners were not happy. Anyway, can anyone help to identify what breed/sex it is. I don't think its a drake. But my vent sexing skills, on an uncooperative duck, are not to be trusted. I think the duckling is around 9 - 10 weeks old. Until the last week it has spent most of its time hiding in the barn behind whatever it could find to stay out of the way of my chickens. That's why its been named Fraidyduck.
