Hey ya'll! I'm brand new here, although I've been stalking for many months! I decided to raise chickens for eggs recently, and bought 4 pullets that are now 16 & 17 weeks old, respectively. After losing one of my girls, I added one of an unknown age and breed. Most recently, I picked up another unknown age/breed but I suspected she was a bantam cochin. I really need help figuring out if my little one is a hen or a roo! Bonus would be to figure out what my other girl is.

Hello! I had no clue how to tell the gender of my ducks either but I've figured out the ducks that have the loud calls are the females and the ones with the quieter, more horse sounding calls are the boys!

Hope I helped! Congratulations!

With most ducks you will see a drake feather
(A feather that curls up like a J shape) and if it has the drake feather it's a boy but Muscovys don't have a drake feather
