    I think this Khaki Campbell is a male but not sure because my other drakes have a green head and more distinct plumage.
    It has curled tail feathers which would indicate a male but its coloring is closer to my other females.

    It is 23 weeks old. It got total paralysis in both legs at about 8 weeks, but I separated it for a few weeks and it slowly recovered.

    Now it still limps a little bit but it gets around decently.

    Yes. It is a male. His head may get a bit darker in spring to lure in the ladies for breeding season. He is young still.

    Yep that’s a male you got there.
    You can see the drake tail curl and
    He has dark feathers by the tail curl.
