Sex of a Duck : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread

How do you tell the difference between a male and female duck?

-- Donna VanMeter (, May 31, 2002


Once they start quacking, the female's voice will be obvious. She's the one that says, literally, QUACK QUACK QUACK, just like Donald Duck:) The male has a quieter quack. Also, the male has tail feathers that kind of curl up.

Greetings, I never checked a duck before but an Indian showed me how to sex a goose. Wrap an arm securely around and hold the goose upside down. With the other hand press fingers around vulva (hole) and press down into gooses body until either nothing happens but folds of skin (female) or a screw shaped penis pops out (male). This doesn't hurt them. It also works for rabbits. No joke!

Bite it. If it screams it's a female duck, if it sweares it has a foul mouth and is probably a male duck. Happy hunting !
