    Hi all glad to be a member of the site as I am new to duck keeping and got a lot of info off this site before buying my welsh harlequins. Was wondering if anyone could help with the gender of my ducks as I am still unsure they are 10/11 weeks old any help would be great thankyou.[​IMG]

    All of your ducks look like ducks to me, but they are still young and may not have grown in any adult drake feathers.

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    X2 I think they all look like ducks. I don't think the coloring would fit for a drake.

    Thanks both for the reply. One drake would be ok but was a bit concerned I had three. Thanks for your help :)

    I'm not familiar with the breed but, they are lovely. You would do best to post photos on the duck thread.
