    Can anyone help tell me what kind of ducklings I have here? 7 babies. Any way to tell the sex of them right now? I got them at a local supply store :) [​IMG]

    They look Black Swedish (black with yellow chest) and Roeun. You can't tell sex at this stage. Between weeks 4 and 6 their voices will start to change and you'll have a better idea then. Girls will quack and boys will make a raspy sound.
