    I was given this pair (I call them a pair -I have no idea if they are a "pair") of ducks. Any ideas of what kind they might be? They are about 14 weeks old. I call them "Harriet and Carter". One just flew a little this morning -should I clip wings?

    They look like mutts of some sort. As for boy or girl, do they quack loudly or make a raspy quiet quack noise?

    They make a waa waa waa sound...not sure if they both do or not as they are always together and the sound comes from their general direction lol.

    The left one might have some buff in it. And the blue one might have some Blue swedish in it.

    They are Barnyard Specials. The gray one looks part Blue Swedish and it is crested. The brown one could be anything.

    The females will occasionally let out an ear splitting Quack Quack Quack. If they are going wa wa and sounding a bit like a wind up toy, you've got drakes.

    At any rate, they are very pretty.

    the one on the left does look buff-ish. Sounds like you might have 2 boys.

    if they are males i think they should have curls on their tails but i cant tell from the picture. the brown one looks like a khaki campbell but i'm no expert on breeds. also look up blue swedish crested duck..but again im no expert i just happened to have the book right in front of me haha if i am right then the black bill on the right should mean its a girl right?
