I have two 6 month old pekins. One quacks loudly, is about 30% smaller, bossy, HAS A TAIL CURL, and is less apt to cuddle. The other is really large, has a tail curl, raspy voice, very calm and mellow and is super affectionate and loving. I am utterly confused by the tail curl. I felt strongly she was female from the beginning but now I'm confused! Help!

Can you post a video of the sounds. I have found in my experience with pekins the tail curl wasn't reliable until they were older, like a year or more. At this point tho any that are doing the LOUD female honking sound is likely a girl.
