Hi, we currently have 9 call ducklings that are 5-6 weeks old. Could anyone tell me what colour they could be? Also any guesses on which could be male or female? This was our first time hatching and first time with ducklings so we have no idea! Thanks :)

They all look like Pastel to me. The males will get a full claret colored bib, so the ones with the darker chests look like drakes to me. I’ve only had one or two female pastels, and I honestly can’t remember if they had much claret on their breasts as juveniles.

Do you have pics of them from their first week?

Thank you, everytime they see me they all sound like they are quacking! When I pick them up some quack and some do sound more raspy but still sound chirpy like when they are smaller. The darkest one I’m pretty sure is a boy. He’s very quiet and he is a lot darker than all of the others.
