    What about your new ducklings @blayt90 can you tell difference in them?

    @Rooster61 your lil Rouen sounded a little raspy but really hard to tell yet, wait a few weeks then put up another video.

    Rouen bill color is a big hint at this age too. Males will be green with a dark bean. I think it's safe to say your Rouen is a female.

    I hate to say it, but, I think you have two drakes. In both Khakis and Rouen’s the feathers above the tail are two toned in females, solid and dark in males.

    Both of yours look solid to me, the Rouen for sure. If you look at Blayt90’s photo you can see what I am saying matches what was said about bill color.

    You said you got them a few weeks ago do you know how old they were when you got them and what are you calling a few weeks?

    Ok so about a month old now. Still may be to early to tell sex except by sound.
