I have a 3 week old muscovy that was vented at the hatchery and is suppose to be a female. I am kinda in panic mode right now because I just read on a website that a females will be completle feathered before there caruncling will apear. Is this the same for all muscovies? Here are a few pictures of the duckling, does she look like a male or female. These pictures are less than 24 hours old. It looks like she(?) is starting to develope caruncling at the top of the beak. You cant see it the pictures but her underbody is slightly rounded from the breast back to the legs, but behind her legs she is really round. I only have the one duckling so I cannot compare them in size.
