    I have 6 ducks and I don't know what breed they are or their gender. I was hoping someone who is familiar with duck breeds can help me out.

    I will post my other 6 ducks when they get back from their day of exploring.

    Those that quack loudly are female - the ones with hoarse whispery voices are drakes.

    The males from what i know have curled feathers on they're tail feathers and but females do not, also the males have very quiet voices rather than the females who have very loud voices

    I'm thinking these 2 aren't spacing because they down stand upright.. They stand like the KhAki campbells

    A boy and girl mallard. Or mallard cross.
    My girls also squeak when they beg for food, it's not very loud but very adorable!

    Edit: I think the crested duck is also female, drakes with that colour should have a green head.
