Question about my Mascovy ducks!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
When we got the ducks we were told they were both males, however this morning I went to get my chicken eggs and one of my ducks was in the corner In a little nest like spot sitting almost like a chicken when when laying. I have never seen either one of my ducks doing that... Could it be a female? Or just spot the he chose to rest?

It could be either scenario.  Can you post a picture of the ducks?

Pics would tell for sure. Also are they the same size? Males are nearly twice the size of females.
