    The male will be larger and have lots of caruncles( red bumps) and usually hiss and wag their tails alot!

    The color of your Muscovy is Chocolate Ripple.

    If it hisses, it's a male.

    If it peeps, it's a female.

    I am voting for the "mule" duck - the ring around the neck isn't common for Muscovy ducks.
