    hi all, hoping I can find out for sure the gender of my Muscovy. It's approximately 3.5 months old, originally was told it was a male but later found out no one ever actually checked. Have had some suggestions it may be female. Thank you in advance for any help on this!

    Looking at the face and overall build, I'm leaning more towards it being a drake.
    Do you have any adult muscovys to compare it to? You can tell by the noise they make, if yours has started making any yet; males hiss and pant and females make a higher pitched purring sound.
