    So I got Rouen ducklings on June 1st and I was wondering if there was a way for me to sex them?

    By this time you can voice sex them, and bill sex a few.
    Males have greenish bills, females have yellow bills. Like so:

    Females (hens) quack: QUACK QUACK QUACK. Males have a raspier, quieter whaaap. To voice sex, you can carry each one (on at a time) away from the others to tell.
