Wondering if anyone has any ideas about the sex of my Muscovy. I only have one so can't compare the size to others. He/she is approx 4 months old, to me looks huge- I can't imagine if a drake being larger than it if it's a female. It doesn't hiss, just makes squeaking sounds like a baby duck still. I've never heard it quack. The feathers on top of its head can stand up if it's annoyed and it has an issue with one of my chickens and has been in a fight with it. Doesn't have any issues with the hen who hatched it and gets along with her perfectly with no drama.
I suspect it's a drake and if I'm right he will have to go as I don't want him around my chickens harassing them. When do drakes usually start acting like drakes and harassing females? [IMG]
