Greetings,

I’m relatively new to the duck rearing community and hoping for some outside opinions on the gender of my ducklings. The Rouen has been quacking (honking) since two weeks of age and we’re pretty sure is female. The Pekin makes a whole series of squeaks, squawks and even screams if it’s ducky sibling is removed, but no quacks to speak of as of yet. I’ve included a picture and look forward to your thoughts.

I’m new to ducks. Mine are almost ten weeks old. I have a swedish and three pekins. One pekin is still eluding me.
Good luck with yours!! Hope you figure yours out sooner than I am. Lol.
They’re just so much fun!!

Wait a few more weeks to be sure, but I'm betting the Pekin is a male.
Thank you...that’s what we were thinking too. I will try and get a video of the Rouen “honking” to share as well. Hoping at least one is female.
