I have four ducks two Aylesbury and two Pekin. They are three and half months old. I know the Pekin Drakes tails will curl but my question is how old are they when the tails start curling

Mine were around 3 months when the curls developed. At 3 and a half months old, you can sex them by their voices. Do they make a low, sort of rasping noise? Or do they loudly quack?

For future reference, sound is indeed the easiest and earliest way to tell. I think by 5-8 weeks you can already tell. Any earlier you'll need to vent (risky) or genotype (if you have access to a PCR)
