I am not sure where the 4th one fits in because whe n looki ng at the pics it's hard to tell whoich i am looking at say in bottom pic I can only see the whole bodies of the 2 females. Top pic I see drake closet to the camera and female over to the right of him. Just guessing I'd say the one behind him  is female too looking at size and if all are same age.

Wonderful! Yes they are all the same age, I also noticed the larger one tries to face off with my cochins frequently when they get too close the the other ones. I would feel very lucky to have 3 out of 4 be female (more eggs of coarse) thank you

Hello all, these are my muscovy ducks, approximately 7 months old.  When I purchased them in the fall, the seller thought one male and two female.  They used to make little cheep sounds, but now they make what I am assuming is the hiss.  They all look almost exactly the same (the one standing alone in the second pic has the largest white spots, which is the only difference I can see).  Do I have three males?

I have a Muskovy male and it's hard to tell by the picture but if they all have large masks then I would have to say all three are males! Good luck
