    Quote:Around 8 weeks the females will start to quack loudly but the males just have a squeeky whisper. At about 10 weeks the male should be exibiting a "Duck" tail feather. This is a feather that curls back on itself in a loop or almost loop. The loud quack is definate though because some males are slow to grow the drake tail feather.[​IMG] OOPS!!! Were you speaking of chicks or ducks?
