    Would someone mind looking at the short YouTube video of my two Indian Runner Ducks to guess their sex? I have been unable to tell by their quack noises. Any other way of knowing?

    Too young - they are still peeping, not quacking or rasping.
    5 or 6 weeks old the voice should start to change.

    How are they with your hens? Have the chickens been pecking them? If the chickens are pecking them move the little runners out.

    X2 I'd be very concerned about those babies being picked on by the big chickens.

    No they all get on OK, when they hatched the hens would keep the ducks warm I'm sure they thought they were the same. Now the chickens drink water as though they are ducks, gett water and lifting neck high.
