    The Black Muscovy I'm pretty sure is a drake. It looks like his konicle (spell) is coming in, and very very large feet. I am not sure about the fawn colored (I think it's a female)

    Can anyone help sex them for me?

    Ok so here's a picture of the drake (we think a drake). Notice the caruncle and big legs. He is much later than the other ducks, and his feathers are actually not as developed than the other two

    Here is a hen (we think). She's same aged as the much larger drake, and has smaller legs and more pronounced flight feathers. No caruncle either
