I am wondering if there is a way to sex and age these Appleyard ducklings. There are four Ancona's I hatched four weeks ago as well. I am trying to sex the Appleyards but can't tell by voice yet. Some are lighter and I was wondering if that ment they were girls or is it just the different duckling colors, mallard looking vs. traditional Appleyard duckling? (Yes,there are five white Appleyard in the lot) thank you for help/advice.

Okay, I was just checking. They are just getting their feathers I'm guessing the age 4-6 weeks but can't be sure as they were malnutrished before I got them. I have been working with two of them that have the tendon damage from it.

I couldn't get this to post sooner, but these are the two with bad legs it's the best I could get as they can't stand up long, I took them to a vet and got vitamin supplements. They get water therapy and I stretch the tendon to keep it from locking. Is there anything else I can do?
