    Hi I'm new to this and can't seem to figure out my duck's breed. I've done some searching but none of them really look like her. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] I believe that your duck is a Muscovy.

    Thank you! I'm a bit confused though, don't muscovys have red faces? I'm not sure of my duck's age so maybe it's an age thing?

    They tend to develop that as they age, i would say it's younger in a few months range and likely a female. Here a pic of a young female of mine from last year.You'll see the fleshing is only beginning.
