So I have 3 muscovies. One I know has to be a female cause I hear her trill a lot. My other 2 I never hear trill but I have heard them both honk (mainly when I am trying to pick them up and pet them). I havent heard any hissing though. They will be 12 weeks this coming Monday. They are all close in size and feathering is pretty much the same so I am thinking they are probably all females. I know its hard to tell at 11 weeks but I was curious what people think about the absence of trilling with the 2 but hearing honks. Sweetpea, the one I know is female, never honks. Just curious of opinions. Like I said earlier I think they are all females but still early to tell I think. The one in the pool is a honker. Lol What do you think?

They do look female. My females will honk sometimes. Generally when they don't like another one of the ducks messing with them. I don't hear it often though.
Thanks. I appreciate the info! How are the eggs if you dont mind me asking? I hear they are really good!
