So I have 4 ducks and have been trying to figure out two of their genders. I know two are males but the other two only quack when I pick them up. Otherwise they sound like the boys do. And i just got two Pekin ducks and all they do it quack. So I didn’t know why the other two only quack when I pick them up! Any one had ducks that did this? I’m really hoping they’re girls!

It appears that one or both of your Pekins are female. If they quack their female, males have a raspy voice. Here’s two good links of what a male and female sound like.

Good luck with your ducks! I find them easiest to sex by voice if you separate one at a time and listen to each. :)

Thank you! It’s just weird that they only quack when being held and those other two quack almost constantly lol

No problem! My Pekin ducks are so loud! They’re constantly honking.
So I picked each duck up and listened to their voice and two quack when being help and two sound like boys which I know they are. But my question is can boys sound like they’re quacking when they’re only 6 weeks old? Because the two that are quacking have green in their face.

But they’re definitely smaller than the two boys and don’t have a ring around their necks like they do.
