    I was told Indian runner but they don't seem to stand up when they walk or run so I'm not so sure.. Also pretty new to ducks so help is appreciated! [​IMG]

    The females can quack really loudly, and the drakes are quieter. I've heard that they sound raspy, but I don't have drakes, so I don't know. The drakes also will get a curly tail feather, and the females won't. I don't know at what age they do, though. How old are yours?

    Hmm I will have to pick them all up and see how they sound! They are about 6 weeks old :)

    They might not have their voice yet at 6 weeks, so it might be another couple of weeks before you know.
