    They're both boys.

    ETA: Boys because they both have drake curls on the tail and the dark heads that go on that color/type, which is snowy call ducks.

    Quote:just wait till i see him next he told me he had been getting eggs of them and told me there was one duck and one drake grrrrrr so i've been ripped off then. grrrrr nice birds tho. I'll have to see if i can find some one selling a duck or swop drake for a duck. i even said to hime are you sure there not both drakes as they both have the curls he said no ya go of there beak colours and that he'd been getting eggs from them.

    Quote:Yup, both boys. Also that is why they are not loud. The female call is very loud, males are much quieter.
