I have really, really been hoping Sunny, my almost 5 week old Pekin, is a little girl. I know it's early to tell, but I have been waiting to hear her quack. Lately though, "her" peeping has had a hoarse sound to it. Does that mean she is a he? No quacking sounds at all. Just regular peeps and some hoarse peeping. Reminds me of a teen boy with his voice just starting to change. Most times he sounds one way, but then a weird sound comes out. LOL So, for those who have raised pekin ducklings, when did their voices change and did the boys' peeps just kind of turn hoarse? Or, do they all sound like that and maybe it is a hen that will start quacking? "She" will be 5 weeks tomorrow. Is it really too early to tell or do you think I have a young drake on my hands? Thanks. Kathy P.S. The only experience I have with pekins, other than her, is grown ones that quack very loudly (hens) or sound rather froggy (drakes). They were grown when I got them. Other than that, I have only raised muscovies from babies, and they are totally different from pekins.
