    So I have been reading and I'm anxious to figure out if I have boys or girls. From what I understand 4 weeks is when you can sorta start voice sexing. I'm new I ducks and have watched a few videos on the difference of quacks but I really am not that good at differentiating between males and females. Mine are 4 weeks as of yesterday and both "quack" but sound more male. Is it still too early? I know time will tell and really nothing will change I just hope and pray we have at least one female. I really want eggs! One is also bigger and the smaller one is more out going. Oh and they are pekin.

    Can you take a video of them vocalizing?

    I took this one this morning, can you tell that I had some treats?

    Thank you for looking, I really do appreciate it. They both makes the same noises and talk quite a bit when I'm with them or have treats. They are 4 1/2 weeks.

    Wow, that's a tough call for me. I do kind of hear both male and female sounds. I think it'll be much easier to tell in another week or so. Wish I could help more! Maybe someone else will see this and give another opinion. :)
