    We are relatively new to ducks, so please pardon my ignorance on this topic as I am on a learning curve, but I'm just not sure what I have here. I've been trying to do my research, but I just keep confusing myself terribly. Can anyone tell me if I have
    males or females here and how to know for sure? (**Please note this is not their permanent enclosure. This is just a small area we put them in to play in the water until we get the proper setup done this weekend.**)

    And here is a slightly different view of the same ducks--

    Looks like 2 girls and a boy. If you pick them up one at a time, girls will honk or quack loudly. Boys will grumble.

    Ok, that's what I was thinking we had, and when I put them up this evening I will see if I can make the voice distinction. Thanks for your reply!
