I have rouen ducks and I'm a first time duck owner. I'm quickly figuring things out.
My intention was to get eggs from a small flock and my daughters surprised me..ugh.
What should I do? I want more hens and less drakes cause I read drakes will give my 1 hen a hard time. I do believe I'm correct on the sex because of the green shine coming in on their heads.
They're all the same age...8 weeks old.
Thanks for your help

Please post profile pictures of your ducklings. Mine are also 8 weeks old with not the slightest sign of their adult plumage. Both do have a greenish sheen over the browns and blacks when in the sun, but I'm positive I have a pair.

Sexing by voice is an option. At 8 weeks the hens have a LOUD beginners quack while the drakes will be far quieter sounding like they have a cold; more raspy sounding.
