Sexing call ducks ,

Postby ziggy » Mon Apr 16, 2012 6:19 pm

I've a couple of call ducks , around three weeks old now I think
I havnt any pics yet but is there any way to tell their sex or do I have to wait till a lot older ? What's to look for then even ?

Hi,
I've some runner ducks I assume the same signs go for all ducks ie the females have a very definate quack and the males have a curl in their tail feathers but you will have to wait some weeks for these signs.

Hi thanks , I agree it could be a while before it looks like you can tell , they are still looking the same size
. But both are lovely , I didn't intend to get them but I'm hoping for a nice pair
