    Looks like a female and fairly young (under 1yo) because of the starting to whiten head.. i have quite a few who look that way that are my summer hatch girls..

    here, ones at the front.. who are just starting to whiten out.. they are several months but under 1yo..

    I'm not sure how old she is. I bought her with a group of roosters.

    I agree with Going Quakers it looks like a young female in that picture. Could you get one of them standing up?

    Got two more ducks! One definite male, the other is younger so I'm not sure. I think it's a girl. [​IMG]
