    I've been told these look like Muscovys but i know nothing about ducks. We have a little rescue centre in Spain and we rescued them as ducklings. There are four altogether they were completely yellow as babies. We have no idea what breed or gender they are any ideas would be appreciated. TIA

    Yes, they are muscovies. Gender is hard to tell at this point.

    Definitely Muscovies. Can you get a nice picture of all four together? They're old enough to tell the sex by now, if you look closely. Males should be much bigger than females, while the females' feathers should be further developed.

    Thanks Hannah. I will try to get a photo of them together they are all about the same size but one is just a little bit smaller. That one was sick as a baby so i dont know if that's why it hasnt grown as much. Im hoping there's not 3 boys and a girl. We'd prefer not to have any babies so might have to seperate them when we know what they are
