    these are pics taken from my duck named fruitloops. this duck is a little skittish pain in the butt... but i love him or her LOL. i'm not toooo sure on age, but it is bigger than the other 2 so i figure it's a few days older then them? my baby turned one month on the 13th. is it too soon for drake feathers??? are those feathers growing in weird or those frake feathers. this duck still kinda peeps but quacks sometimes, like when he yells. mainly when i am running water and they are hungry i can hear fruitloops over the water and also when i take fruitloops from the brooder to the tub.. or vice versa.


    sooo do we think fruitloops is a boy or a girl? or do we not know yet??

    I've seen females with Drake feathers tho. & vice versa. Here's your lesson for the day on sexing ducks. You can tell by the quack. If it has a high pitchy voice it's a female. If it goes quack quack quack like the aflack duck,it's a male. [​IMG]

    Their voices should be your guide. [​IMG]

    Well, you have to pick them up one by one and walk them away from the others. If it's a girl, the farther away you get the louder she'll quack! [​IMG]
