Hi there, I have two Rouen ducklings from tractor supply, they are still young and I know sexing them takes time. But just wanted people’s thoughts. We think one is a male, and one is a female. One has a ring around the back of the neck and the other does not and their feathers are growing in differently. They also have different voices. Opinions appreciated! ❤️

They are adorable but I will have to call in an expert @MagpieDucks or @Table4Six You said distinct voices you maybe hearing some quacking but the drakes peep a lot longer than the females
I’m not sure if it’s quacking, they are only about 5 weeks old. The one we think (HOPE) is a female name is Shadow her peep is louder while the other, Spunky, makes a very weird lower pitched sound and talks a whole bunch. And he’s the one with the white ring, so my husband thinks a male. When they were younger, I thought Shadow was the boy and Spunky the girl until my husband googled about the white ring around his neck. I thought so because Shadow was bigger than Spunky.

Like I said I know sexing at young ages is hard. We’re just hoping one is at least a girl. We just don’t want two boys.

It looks like you have 2 girls. :D To post a video it has to be uploaded to YouTube or something similar, that copy/pasted to here.
Awesome! We were thinking that too but the other one isn’t quite so talkative. As long as ones a girl! We’re happy! I’ll have to try the YouTube video thing later! Thank you!
