    Welcome to BYC. Do they quack loudly or do they 'talk' with a softer sound?

    Pick the duck up and if it has a loud quack it is a girl. If it has a deep hoarse sound and not a loud quack it is a boy.

    How old are they? By five months old ducks start laying eggs. Also what the others the female will have a really loud quack. And the male doesn't quack it's very soft and raspy.

    Judging by the feather patterns I think they're girls. That's the way a female mallards are, and my female khaki Campbell's are like that. Also they're not brightly colored. So my guess is female.
