    Hello! We’ve got 4 Khaki ducks that are 9 weeks old and we think we for sure have one drake (the dark one). He likes to boss everyone around, including the geese . We’re hoping the other 3 are females but there’s conflicting indicators (feet, bill, bean etc.). We’ve tried identifying by voice but with 4 ducks and 3 vocal geese, it’s hard to isolate which one is making which sound. What do you think?

    You mean the other one with the dark bill? I'm also thinking he's a drake but was hoping someone would correct me LOL.

    I'm thinking that and get rid of a Drake or two. Breeding season is terrible and Drakes fight lots..Plus terrible hard on Hens.

    I agree with at least 2 drakes there (from the left, #1 and #3). #2 I say girl all teh way, but #4 stumps me to be honest

    3 drakes unless #4 isn’t a Khaki, #2 is the hen as previously stated. The dark feathers above the tail give the boys away. Girls have two-toned lighter feathers.
