    Just wondering if you cancan tell if my pekin is male or female based on this... It may not be enough to go off of but just curious. Trying to get some other sounds out of him/her or "it" lol.
    We'll go with Hayhei because that's his (*fingers crossed) name. Lol

    Welcome to BYC!

    He sounds like a boy to me, (you can generally tell by quacks at that age) but if he makes any other noises, I'd like to hear them.

    I think he might be male because of his quacks. Females tend to make the traditional loud quacking sound while males usually make more of a raspy chirp. Of course I can’t be certain but that would be my guess.
    Lol of course if he starts laying eggs then you’ll know he’s female.
