    Welcome to BYC. I think the hens quawk and the males hiss. But to be sure please post on the "Duck thread," they really know ducks, and I don't. Also males usually have one tail feather that curls.

    Hi and welcome to BYC.
    If you check out the Learning Centre, you'll find a whole host of resources on all things chicken, duck etc.

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center

    Your state thread is worth joining as you will get to know other BYC members in your area (just type your state in the search box). In fact, the search box should become your best friend [​IMG] Lastly but by no means least, the members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC,

    All the best
    CT
