    You can usually begin teling what gender most ducks are by 4 or 5 months.Males get a raspier type quack,drakes also get curls in the tails.Ducks with colors have shiny feathers while the females do not.Also hens quack,have no curl and do not have bright colors.

    See the drake on the end?The duck with the curl on his tail is our pekin drake (Jumbo pekin).The duck in the middle is a female,see she has no curl?

    I can normally tell at around 8 weeks old- by then their voices have usually developed and it's quite easy to accurately sex them. Ducks go quack and Drakes make a raspy whisper noise.
