    Thank you for all your kind welcomes :) I've been reading this forum for a few months now and it's proved very helpful :)

    I was wondering if any of you might be able to help me work out the gender of my ducks, I think I have one of each as their tails look quite different but neither have curly up feathers yet which is all googles come up with for identifying drakes. I also tried to tell by the noise they make as I found something on Google about the volume and pitch of their quacks but mine both just gave me a loud honk when I tried :S

    This is a picture of their tails

    I'm thinking top one male, bottom one female?

    Thanks Hazel
