Rescue Ducks

I recently had a call from someone looking for a home for three baby mallard ducks, I told them I would love to give them a home and thought they were about 6 weeks of age.  When I looked at them, they looked more like 4 weeks, than 6 weeks.  I am hoping that they end up females, since I already have three males.   I did finally find someone close by that was wanting to get rid of some adults, both Pekin and Mallards, so I might go buy some from them to even out the flock.   Last week I moved them outside full time, I was letting them out in the duck pen during the day, I didn’t want to let them stay in with the adult ducks until they were a little older.   They are not almost all feathered out, they are still a little young for me to tell if they are males or females.  I can sometimes tell when they are about 8 weeks old, which should be next week.

Update: I am positive we have at least one female from the three that I rescued. I am still not sure about the other two, will try and post pictures and keep things updated.
