Are my Muscovys hens or drakes??

Hi all,

I have 2 Muscovys that are 7 weeks old. I'm trying to figure out what sex they are. I had a third that was definitely a drake (was twice the size of my other 2) but I lost him in a dog attack.

The ducklings are growing feathers in at the same rate, their legs and feet are the same thickness and size and there is not a huge difference in size between the 2.

Any suggestions as to their sex is greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
HH

When you say the 3rd was a drake, were they all the same age? Because if they were it would suggest these 2 are both females. If not then the one on the right may be a drake as it's slightly bigger, you may need to wait another couple of weeks to see if it spurts ahead in growth. Beautiful ducks :)

Thanks for you're reply.

They are all from the same hatch. The little grey one was much smaller than the black and white but has caught up in the last couple of weeks and there's not a big size difference in them now. The one that died was much bigger. The grey and white one was the smallest by a long shot and the black and white was the 2nd smallest of the hatch.
