    My ducks make a noise like pigs squealing. Can you tell by this if they are male or female?

    How old are they and what kind of ducks do you have?

    Usually a quacking noise is a female and a low raspy noise is a male.

    In the first pic it looks female but in top view 2nd throws me off get a good side view of whole body on each one then front view. And they don;t have much flesh on their faces at least the blk one doesn't can't really see the face of the light colored one.
