    Hi, we have had our babies for 3 weeks. We were told they were 4 weeks old when we got them, so should be 7 weeks old now. I'm not sure! Does anyone have a clue on age and sex please? They are runner X Cayuga. [​IMG][/IMG]

    Best way of sexing Ducks is waiting till they stop peeping and start quacking...Hens have a clear loud QUACK...Drakes have a raspy quack...Once they mature more a Drake gets a Drake tail feather..Curled

    Cheers!
