What are their genders?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 


I think the muscovy is a female and the pekin a male. They are both about 11 1/2 weeks The pekin is a lot larger than the muscovy. I dont know how to sex by sound bc ive never had ducks before them and i cant compare sizes cause they're the only two that i have. I can see that the muscovy's carnucles are coming in cause its pink around where the beak meets the face. I'll post a picture of them when i get a chance

I've only known to sex ducks by the "sex feather" that the males had and I don't see an obvious one on either? :) So I hope that you have both girls!

I don't know much about muscovies, but I would guess that's a girl based on size? hopefully someone else with experience can help.

How loud is the Pekin? do they make any quack sounds? or is it quiet and raspy?
