    I have a 9 week old pekin duck who has not started to quack neither does he have have a curl feather. I say he but I don't know if it's male or female. If it's a female should it be quacking by now? If it's a male when should he get his curl? Thanks for any info.

    Its still young, my pekin is 13 weeks old and has not gotten his curl either. You have to wait for it to molt its feathers for it to get its curled feather. It should have a raspy voice if it is a male
