    Either way, her name is Claire. Just wondering if I should expect eggs or something...

    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.[​IMG]
    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.

    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.

    Quote:She is about 6 or 7 months now, and she has a very loud quack... she answers back when I call her, also she does this little like bubbly chirpy quack too.
