    Are you starting to hear any voice changes? It may be too soon (the voice changes usually around 6 weeks). If not the only way to tell at this point is vent sexing.

    Looks more likes rouen than a mallard. Too young to sex other than vent sexing.

    Voice should come forth though by 5-6wks you hear the differences... the drake mallard colouring is much later as is the drake curl.
