    I picked this lone duckling up yesterday from a friend for my lone female Muscovy Matilda, it was cute she adopted it right away....OHH I so hope it is a hen as well since we have already been calling her Rosie.

    So is it a Rosie or RocKy?

    Thanks for your help

    Hard to say at this age. How old is your other Muscovy? I'm thinking for comparison Does look like a Rosie face..

    Realistically, at this point as you have stated anything would be little more than a guess. [​IMG]

    i think its a male. just putting it out there. i also think its hard to tell at 4 weeks especially without any others to compare it to.
