    Would like to know what kind of ducks i have, and do they look like male or female? I know the white one is a muscovy but it recently just grabbed the other black duck and humped it like crazy for a few min. I thought they were both males. The white one is very quiet but a very large duck. The black one has a deep loud quack. Im so confused, though both were males, would males try to mate with other males? Lol

    Yes, males do hump other males.

    Quacking means female.

    Please look out for your female, since the Muscovy drake can overdo it. It is our job to keep every member of the flock safe. Including from each other. Separating them with a temporary fence may make the drake irritated, but - well - let him be irritated. That won't hurt him. Rough mating can kill a duck.
