    I know the pictures aren't the greatest but I was hoping someone could have another guess at what sex my ducklings are. They're 7 weeks old tomorrow 20191021_182606.jpg 20191021_182606.jpg 20191021_182801.jpg 20191021_182759.jpg

    Can u take a pic of their back? Males have a much longer abdomen. I think the mostly white is female and black beak male but very hard to tell in a picture...

    I believe they're both drakes. They look big, chunky, masculine, and don't have much wing development compared to what a female would probably have, in proportion to their size. It's impossible to be 100% sure, but that's my guess.

    Luckily i did take some photos so show their feather growth!
    And also one picture of their butts as they walk into their home for the night (graciously painted purple by my 4 daughters) 20191021_182808.jpg 20191021_182812.jpg 20191021_182932.jpg
