    Drake or duck please

    Wandered in from a sleet storm last night. I separated it from the hens in the hens coop but if it's a male I'd like to room it in the rooster Coops. Both have space....maybe it will wander back home. Fell in love already so I hope not though.

    Muscovy ducklings- do not want to leave their house
