    HI! I have 3 ducklings that are about 3.5weeks old and I am wondering if someone can tell me how to sex them? They are white Pekin ducks. Thanks!

    By that age you should be able to hear the girls developing a louder quack, It may take a while longer until you can pick for certain which they are but spend some time listening to them - the girls have a deeper voice and the boys will be the ones who develop a soft raspy kind of whispery voice.
