(when their babies the skreach if you pick them up because they want to be with the other ducks well one of them is loosing the skreach sound, it's voice is lowering.

    if you dont vent sex, you can only tell pekins apart from their voice, and their drake curls. Female pekins are very, loud. Even at 5 weeks you should be able to tell the differnce...females almost honk...males still sound peepy almost. good luck.

    well, I just checked my ducks out the one is sounding lower, but not loud, and the other sounds really high, and out. if I have a male pekin, when will it get the drake feather in?

    The one on the right almost looks like a drake to me, at least the way the tail feathers seem to be standing up. Can't tell on the one on the left though.


    I got a Pekin duckling myself, I vent sexed and THINK it's a boy. Hoping I'm wrong though [​IMG]
