i have moth old mallards, and i want to know how to sex them.
You can do okay with voice...
The low pitch are usually males and the high (earpiercing) pitch are the females...
they dont really make any sounds they only make when i pick them up
oh my... all 4 of my ducks are LOUD!!!!
If you pick one up do the others quack?
The lady I got mine from showed me how to vent sex and compared them to the quacks... she was always right on...
Wish I could help more...
sometimes the other one quacks
look at their bills. The drakeswill usually be a darker greenish with the hens starting to get some orange. Also, the drakes heads will usually be darker.
got any relatively close pictures of your ducks?
front duck = drake
back duck =hen
these are probably close to a month old
At a month old, it may be a little harder to tell as many still peep and have dark bills. Usually at around 6 or 7 weeks, you'll see a voice and bill color change. But, I did notice that the female ducklings were extremely loud peepers at a month old.
one of my ducklings bills looks a little like the one of the drake and the other duckling looks a little like the female.
and one of them is starting to form a white ring on its neck
