    I read somewhere last night that muscovy drakes have a pointed tail and the hen a more squared off one. I am desperately trying to sex these 2 rescues that I have in case I need to re-home them with winter coming. Their tails are a rounded square??????Or a squared point!!! Not relishing the idea of vent sexing them. Thanks, Carolyn

    If they are fully grown then the male will be much bigger than the female.
