    My black runner approximately 12 weeks old has a much louder quack then the other 2. MMmmmm. No sign of curled tailed feathers, but just wondering.
    Also if Daffny is actually Daffy [​IMG] what color would the ducklings be if crossed with my fawn and white runner?

    Loud quack=duck (as in KWAK-KWAK-KWAK)
    Softer 2 syllable raab = drake (as in whah-WHAH whah-WHAH)
