    how long until they hatch?
    how long does it take for them to mature once hatched?
    How can i sex them/when can i sex them?
    are they loud or do they just hiss?

    35 day incubation period.
    They mature more slowly than mallard derived breeds - 5 + months?
    By 7 or 8 weeks the drakes will be considerably larger than the ducks.
    They hiss, and ducks will trill quietly - not noisy at all.



    They are a great duck for eating.
