So, being new to ducks, though having kept hens for about 6 years, I've a question re the sex of my two K-Cs. I'm pretty sure of the answer, but would appreciate backup as the chap who sold them to me isn't sure I'm right - of course, I could be wrong - that's where you come in!!!

thanks very much in advance
Jane

The best place to ask about your ducks would be in the Ducks section. I'm afraid I know just enough about K-C's to be dangerous! LOL Yours are gorgeous though! I hope they are the right sex...

I've never had ducks but, have read somewhere on here that the males are the ones with the curled tail feather. I don't know if that is fact or fiction.

Welcome! Yes, it looks like to drakes. Another way you can tell is to listen to their quacks. If they are soft quiet quacks, it is likely a drake. If they are loud and quack a lot, it could be a duck. (female) But don't be mistaken. I have a female who doesn't quack at all. Hope you find all the info you are looking for on the site!
