    We love this sweet Ancona but are still unsure on gender! He/she is 11 weeks old. No quacking-- still peeping like a duckling? Is this normal? No drake feather- any other ways to tell. We're 99% sure the welsh harlequin buddy is a drake![​IMG]

    At that age if it was a hen she would be quacking like a girl. They don't get their curls until about 3-4 but you can voice sex them by 6 weeks old.
