    I have 6 muscovy ducklings all were hatched May 17th. There are 2 that I am pretty sure are male but the rest I have no idea [​IMG] I appreciate any help [​IMG]

    This is my favorite [​IMG] Coco Puff [​IMG] I am pretty sure he's a he.

    It would help if we could get full body shots that include the feet [​IMG] Or even better the ducks in question standing next to something for size comparison

    I find a group picture works best - hens are much smaller than males at that age, so are pretty easy to distinguish when they're next to each other.

    A group shot, showing their feet and body length would help, but I wanted to say, you have some very pretty ducks. That second one..I'll bet a male judging from his length...is just gorgeous! I've been getting a lot like that in both chocolate and black this year. They are real eye catchers.

    I'm having the same problem of not knowing what mine are - they all seem to be the same size and I think I have three boys. Your first two have a lot more carnuckling than the other three. They really are beautiful!
