need some help with my 4 beautiful pekins and 3 khaki ducks, it was sold as 2 drakes and the rest hens. Now that they are playing hop on top I'm not sure who is what, I know for a fact my two drakes by the tails and quacks but my females, I'm not sure if the are females or males.

In the smaller files, The khaki campbell in the second picture is a female and the one in the sixth picture is definitely a male. A better picture is needed for the fourth picture. I am no expert at sexing pekins but in the first picture, the one swimming in the background looks like a male.

Khaki's have gender-specific coloring. Females have the light feathering and eventually darker heads at some point, but males have dark green heads.

Additionally, drakes have a curled tail feather such as the male pekin in the first that's swimming. You can see that little upward-curled feather that the female khaki doesn't have.

EDIT: The two khaki's in your latest pic both look like ladies!
