    I am trying to figure out the breed and sex of my ducks. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    The black ones look like cayugas.Need a better pic of the tails from the side to tell if they are girls...have you heard them quack? Boys are raspy and girls are loud.

    The black ones look like Cayugas, as was mentioned. The other two look like drakes to me (no sex tailfeathers yet, but their heads, bills and head coloring do look very "drake"). Not sure of the breed, maybe khaki Campbell or kC/mallard mix?

    I agree - they all look like drakes. Their size, head-bill shape, etc. is an indicator though they are still juveniles and don't have the tail curl yet.

    Drakes will have a curled tail feather and a "quieter" quack than the females.

    The black Ones are Cyugas I think, and the other two are Rouen Females. Two of my female ducks have drake feathers, so dont rely on that. Beautiful Birds!
