So I fell prey to the temptation of the TSC display. I now have two 3-week-old yellow ducklings. I have no clue of gender or breed as they were labeled "Assorted" & Unsexed. In the last couple of days, one has started making a quack-ish noise in addition to the peeping while the other only peeps. Is this a clue as to gender? Any other tips on figuring out whether they are male or female? Thanks!

The males will have curled up tail feathers, "a duck tail" maybe around six weeks...it was a long time ago...when I had ducks.

Do you have any pictures???

You could look here. I've asked the same about my 8 babies. Have gotten quite a few different answers.
