    Is it too early? These are my first ducks.
    I'm guessing these two are three weeks old. Both have feathers that appear to go up on their hind end. One has a different color bill than the other. More pinkish.

    I have 2 4 week old ducklings and i'm not positive on their gender but there are always you can make an educated guess.

    1st you can look at the feathers on their tail. if it points down, it's most likely a girl. i it points up, it's most likely a boy. this can be tricky to tell because they can move their tail up on it's own

    you can also pay close attention to the way they speak. if it's a loud pitched call = girl. if it's a low, quieter, deep, grimy voice= boy. this is hard to tell and it really just depends on their mood. this method isn't super reliable

    Any duckling can be loud.I tend to even have high pitched sounds.Voice sexing is usually way easier around 4 or 5 months.
