You might be able to tell which/how many are girls by how load they are. Even female ducklings are louder than male ones (we got free hatchling ducklings once, and I told my husband to pick out the 5 loudest ducklings of the 20 or so ducklings there. We got 4 girls and 1 guy--much better than the normal 1-1 ratio!). You probably have at least one female that has moved beyond the "peeping" stage to make a loud "Uht-Uht!" sound. Picking up a duck is a good way to get them to "uht" if they're going to. The boys make more of a soft "wahck" sound, though at this stage, the boys are all still probably making more of a peep sound...it's just a quieter peep than the girls.

4 inch pump in a 4 inch pipe.
I haven't been looking into well stuff for a while, my understanding was that a N inch pipe tends to use a N-1 inch pump so the pump has plenty of space to draw water from. If another pump is needed at some point, a 3 inch pump might be considered.
How deep is the well, and what is the non drawn depth of water? It seems like the low water protection is different for different depths.
Rather than a 5 gallon bucket are there some space IBC totes around? Need one donated to the cause?
