    Do you all ever get tired of this sexing game? I am grateful that the experts in the forum are so patient with us newbies. This is our 7 week old Muscovie. I am looking for opinions on the gender. Any guesses??

    Drake! [​IMG] Look at that stance, long body & LOOOOOOng tail in the second pic. Also, the beginning of caruncles though he hasn't feathered in yet. Yep, and the fact that he isn't feathered in yet. Cute!!!

    I think you got your answer, but I have to say that he's a cutie. We have one at the lake I go to that is close to that color. I love how he wags his tail at me when he's in a good mood.
