    I can see them, so precious! I can only hear peeping maybe still too young to sex by voice but if you pick one up you may get a quack. Pick one up and walk away from the other one and do it with both a different times that can usually get a good quack out of them if not too young.

    That video worked :thumbsup

    Still sound a little too “peepy” to be definite, but I would say females.

    Would it be possible to tell if the rouen is a male from the green sheen on his head when he's in the right lighting?

    My females also had a sheen when they were younger and lost it when they got their adult feathers. What color are their bills? My males had a yellowish green bill when they were juvenile. Like in this picture. 987D4D82-FE3C-4367-8B26-1A6FE7D389BB.jpeg

    It's very faint, but in the right light I can see it.

    No, mine don't look like that, but he's much younger then yours, just a month old, doesn't have all his wing feathers yet.
