    Hey everyone! I have a small backyard flock :love I have a Muscovy hen (always broody), two Muscovy Drakes, a Pekin hen (never broody), a Pekin drake and two beautiful Hinnies that my Muscovy hen and I hatched in the winter. The reason I'm writing this is because I can't find very much about Hinnies or Mulards online. I would love to know everything I can about these beautiful "mules". I feel like I know the basics! They can't reproduce, Muscovy hen + Pekin drake = Hinny, Pekin hen + Muscovy Drake = Mulard..... etc...
    I still don't know if they are hens or drakes! They have this beautiful chatter but also a quack. I can't find online pics of the male and female and they aren't old enough to lay eggs or breed... I just want to know more :) Thanks for reading ya'll! 20170519_085720.jpg 20170518_081113.jpg 20170519_085720.jpg 20170518_081113.jpg 20170519_085720.jpg 20170518_081113.jpg 20170519_085720.jpg 20170518_081113.jpg

    Sorry about all the duplicate pics. Still very new here :rolleyes: if someone could also tell me how to edit the thread and delete some of the pics, that'd be great :D
    Thanks again!

    I'm not new to BYC but still struggling to find out what works on the new website.
    There used to be a pencil icon, so you could delete or correct a post. If you contact any of the moderators, they should be able to assist in eliminating duplicate photos.

    Welcome to Backyard chickens.

    Hi and welcome to BYC. You can just use the edit icon and then there should be a delete icon, should you wish to delete a whole post. I hope that the duck folks can help you with your question - http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/42/ducks

    I simply can believe no one answered you on how to tell if they are female.
    All Muscovies squeak and hiss
    all mallard drakes are nearly silent
    Therefore if the quack they are female.
