Good morning,

We purchased this pair of Kahki Campbells a couple months ago and they've been great thus far. However, we are uncertain as to what their gender is. Their tail feathers appear to be the same as our (2) hen Pekins. So we are hoping these Kahki's are hens as well (no desire to have drakes at this point).

And just to be fun, lets add a poll to this post!

Thanks in advance.

Hi. :frow

With no curly tail feathers, maybe female. How old were they when you purchased a couple months ago?

Their voice can be a huge indicator. Hens keep their nice loud quack while drakes voice will become much quieter. It been a while, but I think it was kinda like a whistle.

My boy didn't get his curly tail until around 15 week if I remember correctly. And when I looked at pics just now it seems as though the male head will still turn green..

Do they quack really loud or do they rasp?

Honestly it's hard to tell with the Pekins in there. They sound extremely similar to the Pekin hens. I've been leaning towards female with them, but just wanted to make sure before it was further down the road.

They were a few days old I'd imagine. We purchased them from our local Rural King. I'd venture to say they are 10ish weeks old currently.
