    So we got some duckies this year (never have had them before) and absolutely adore them they are just too cute. When we bought them they said they were Mallards they think since they weren't yellow chicks like the pekins usually are. So now their wing feathers have come in they both have 2 blue squares does that mean any specific breed or sex or what. Here is the best picture I have at the moment.

    Lol you've got mallards all right, as far as sex you can tell that by their quacks at this age. are they loud or more of a deeper hiss quack?

    One of them is definitely loud sometimes I think it will never stop quacking lol. The other one I'm not sure I just had a baby so I don't get down to their pen much I go mostly by what I can hear in the house haha. I'll hafta get back to you on that one. But I know for a while we had the noisy loud one and then one that would open its mouth like it was gonna quack but nothing came out haha its finally making some sorta noise though but I honestly can't tell ya what as my hubby spends the most time with them. Now that the weather is warmer hopefully I'll get to spend more time with them as well.
