    My son bought these 4 at TSC for me to raise for his kids. He has no idea what kind they are. I don't know much about ducks. I was guessing 4 female Mallards?

    They look like Mallards as I can only see one stripe. Rouens will have two. : )

    there is no way to know if they are female yet.
    do they all 4 quack? if so then they are females.
    if not they either males, or too young.
    they arent old enough to have the bright green heads,
    as they get older they will get them,

    They quack but I haven't payed attention to who's doing the quacking. I'll have to see if I can tell.

    only the females will quack. males will have a raspy voice and be alot more quiet.

    Pick them up one by one and find the quacker. If any are raspy (like CG said) that's a boy.

    I'm trying to tell from the bill, but the pic is a little too dark and far away for me.
