I have exactly zero experience with ducks so I figure I have a 50/50 chance of getting it right, so I vote girl! She's very sleek.

While I'm at it, I will appoint her....Teal.

Don't boy ducks usually have that curled feather on the tail? I'm pretty sure all the boys have that, so in that case, this one would be a girl.

How old is claire? Looks like a female to me. But males dont get their plummage until a certain age. And they dont get their drake feather (curly) feather until a certain age also.

What does her quack sound like, is she loud? Or kind of raspy.

Oh, you guys cant even see her pretty blue-ish feathers... I'm uploading more pictures to a different thread so go check em out! I also think she is a girl I'm just anxious for her to lay an egg!

That for sure is a girl. It looks like a female mallard. We call them little susies. Thmale mallards have a shiny green head and are very colorful.
