The most obvious way to tell the difference between a male and female duck is the fact that the females are usually drab in color.The males have color(red, yellow, white,orange).
Another way to tell, once the ducks are fully grown, is by the tail feathers. A drake (or male) has between 1 and 3 curly feathers on his tail, called 'drake feathers'. The female is lacking in this feather.
