How old are ducklings before you can tell how old they are?
You can vent sex them at a few hours old like hatcheries. With Muscovies you can tell as the males are larger and their wings take longer to develop then the females.
With mallards juvenile drakes will have a darker lacing and a broken voice (purberty) then later they will get their curled tail feathers and colour up.
Sorry I'm not sure about age
Hello..Mallard derived breeds can be voice sexed at around 5 to 6 weeks depending on breed..Hens Quack and Drakes rasp..After the juvenile molt Drake get a tail curl at around 4 months of age..
If talking about Muscovy?. @Miss Lydia can give you information.
By 6 weeks you can voice sex them generally..
Is that the earliest? I have one that's bigger than all the others and sound kind of raspy.. But I'm not sure if its sick or what.
Then a Drake..
Can you post a pic or video of this lil one if it is sick maybe we can help.
