    Hello I'm really new to ducks and I was wondering if yall had any clue of the sex of these ducks? They are 5-7 weeks old.

    Eta I know you're supposed to be able to tell by the quack but they are always hudled up close it's hard to tell who's making what sounds.

    Until they get a male sex feather on the tail....you'll have to pick them up and listen. Any quack is a girl. At 5 weeks they are not making adult sounds all the time and it's just easier to pick them up to get a quack....at 7 weeks you should be able to do this fairly quickly and easily. Just looking at this age is just not really possible. And FYI these are really feathered out for just 5-7 weeks...so are you sure of the age? Are they white already or is it the camera/computer color off? They look like they are much older with tail feathers, no yellowish fuzz...

    I got them from tsc on March 4th and they didn't seem to be very old maybe 2 weeks at MOST and that's stretching it
