    Welcome to Backyard chickens. Sorry I don't know about ducks but you can post on the "Duck thread," and get advice from folks who raise them.

    Welcome to BYC! I'm glad you joined us! :) I'm not duck expert, but I think #2 and #4 are drakes, not sure about #1, and #3 looks like a female.

    Hello, I have had some ducks and found the drake matures slower so as they get the wing feathers the boys are late to get them. they are lots bigger by about 10 weeks and the feet are thick and bigger. The Red is similar for a long time till he fully matures. hope that helps. Oh he will hiss and bob his head more.Also often drakes are born smaller. Dont call him tinkerbell!
