    Sorry for the blurry pics. I just took them and didn't realize they were so blurry. Ok, I have a Muscovy Duck that's just over 3 months old. I hatch it with my Japanese Bantam Hen. She was a great mothers to the it. My question is, Can anyone tell by these pictures if it's a Drake or Hen. I'm hoping for a Hen but something tells me it's a Drake. What do you think?

    I would agree and say drake. The legs look thick and the head is fairly large which would all point to it being a drake. Hens are usually small
