Hi all We have one duckling at the moment (and 5 adult ducks). The duckling hasn't quacked yet, it's still peeping and making a sort of hoarse quack (not the same raspy noise as my adult male makes, but definitely not a normal loud girl quack). He's 6 weeks old tomorrow and not fully feathered yet but would I assume he's definitely a boy? It's rather hard when you don't have a few ducklings of the same age to compare their progress! The only reason I'm really anxious to find out is because if he is a boy, our ratio of male to female won't be very good (3 females, 2 males) so we will get 2 more adult females to add to the flock. There are some I could get at the moment that are lovely 8 month old girls. We'd prefer not to have to get any more ducks at the moment, but will if our ratio is definitely no good. We've got our duckling and his mum separated from the rest of the ducks at the moment because our male was picking on the littlie and constantly trying to mate with his mum. So, do I need to wait a few more weeks to confirm if he's a boy, or is it obvious by now? And how do I go about introducing two adult ducks to our flock with the least amount of problems?
