    they are muscovy...very pretty to! not sure on the sex tho...but with my best guess...they both look like females to me...the males get noticeably larger than the females and they both look to be about the same size...

    yep... 2 pretty muscovy girls! The only real way to tell boy from girl with muscovy is that the girls make pretty trilling sounds and the boys make a raspy huffing sound. Boys are considerably bigger and have thicker legs but if you have two of the same gender there really isn't any way to compare.

    They're certainly pretty [​IMG]
