    We got this little "guy" at about 2 weeks old and believe he is now approx 3 months. He was all by himself without his momma and other babies and being stalked by some kitty cats. Just trying to verify that he is a Muscovy and a male. Any help appreciated.

    Definitely a Muscovy, but they can be difficult to sex when they are young. So I'll let someone else try to help with that. ;)

    Agreed - Muscovy, but I don't keep them, so I don't know if the very little caruncling means a girl, or just if boys don't get all the lovely red on their faces till they are much older.

    Looks like maybe a drake but if you can do a full front and side view that may help. Very pretty scovy and awesome rescue. @elgrayco Welcome to BYC
