I got these Khaki Campbells a few weeks ago. Obviously straight run. As I’m new to owning ducks, I was wondering if anyone here could tell as of yet if they were male or female or are they still to young? Thanks in advance. All pictures are of the same 2 ducks.

Yes, and the male quack gets louder as time progresses.

When they get their adult feathers you'll be able to tell by their color. The males are a lot more colorful,the females stay brown.mine are so light a brown they're almost white. The females quack a lot louder than males though,I have to be real close to my males to even hear them but the females I can hear quite a ways off. Their quacks get louder about the same time their adult feathers come in roughly. About 2 months old is when mine have came in completely.
You might find this interesting and informative.

Thank you! My 2 little quackers are in fact both female. They are very loud & make themselves heard.
