    If someone with some experience can tell me if the louder duck in the audio is male or female it would be much appreciated!

    They are 8 week old Khaki/Cascade mixes and are almost the same size as the adult hens. When approached, there are the 2 sounds heard in the recording; the louder duck sound mentioned above, and the one in the background with the more solid whistle or peep-like tone. My reading has me guessing the more solid tone is female, but I am unsure as neither is noticeably louder than the other (unless recorded at different distances from a microphone...)

    Thanks!

    You'd be better sexing them with photos.
