I have 3 pekin ducklings that are about 4 weeks old. I noticed they have started making more adult duck noises, and I was wondering at what age I can try to voice sex them? Two are still making squeaky baby noises most of the time...another makes more classic "duck" sounds.

Any tips?

It's no problem at all! Drakes will just remain a very soft "raspy" voice. My ducks are always much louder from a fairly early age. I can almost always voice sex by 6 weeks.

Thanks again! I will keep listening. It is hard to figure out who is making what noise just yet. I can't believe how fast they are growing! I have chicks 2 weeks older who still seem like such babies by comparison. I appreciate the help!

Drakes do keep their baby voices much longer than ducks. Sounds like two boys and a girl to me too :) But give them a few more weeks. Some individual ducks do take longer than 4 weeks to start making sounds that resemble quacking.
