How do you tell a male magpie duck from a female magpie?
a male magpie has his coat nearly fully white and the female magpie is more black.
It depends on what kind of duck it is... but most of the time no, you can't tell if a duck is male or female from the size of their head.... you can rarely tell by their head shape. (:
A male mallard duck will be green and very beautiful. A female will be gray and more dull.
The same way you do with any other species of duck. The males of any duck species tend to have a lower growlike quack, have more iridescent feathers, may be more aggressive, and have the curly drake feathers on their tails.
On a male duck after a while two feathers will start to curl on its tail. If its a female duck the feathers will not curl. Depending on species, males are usually more colorful.
When they are fully feathered, the male will have feathers that curl on his tail and the female doesnt. This is how you tell if they are male or female without handling them

A male mallard duck has a shiny, green head. A female is brown. But when does this difference take place? all chicks look alike when they are hatched. when does the transformation take place? at what age or stage?
A male duck is called a drake. A female duck is not called a drake (duck or hen) Drakes (male ducks) of most breeds have a 'drake feather' on top of their tale, a feather that looks like it has been curled with curling tongs... The markings of drakes are different than those of the ducks in most breeds.
I have a Mallard, and a White Duck. There are many different species, but the only one i am sure of how to tell is the Mallard. When it is grown, if it is mostly brown with little other colors such as black or white, it is a female. If it is brown with colors such as blue or gree everywhere, and a green head it is a male.
Well, the male is like any other duck, it has curled tail feathers.As for the female , the ducks I own are mallard hens and a male and the females are brown witch means they are discolored, so maybe the female pekin duck is dicolored or they are white just without curled tail feathers. This is all I know but i hope it helped a bit.
There is no way to tell if a duckling is male or female when they are young, when they get to about 4-6 weeks old you will be able to pick up on it by their sound, if they are deep voiced they are male, squeaky and high pitched is female :)

Unlike most other ducks, you can't tell the gender of a Cayuga by their coloring. The only way I know of is when they get older, a male Cayuga duck develops male sex feathers on the main tail. These feathers should be fairly hard and curl upwards from the rest of the tail feathers, and there is usually two or three of them. On a female these feathers would be straight and flat.

Determining Sex Male and female ducks, and most birds in general, have very different coloration. The pictures in a good bird book will show you these differences.
