    Can someone please tell me the sex of my muscovy duckling. It's about 6 weeks old. I found it in a storm drain when it was about 2-3 days old so I only have the one. These where pics of it today. If you need a different angle or something just let me know. Thank you.

    I'm no good with Muscovies, but I think they're usually sexed by leg and body size... think it's easier if you have more than one, though...

    @Miss Lydia any ideas? Or too early?

    Yes I was thinking the same thing but the mother duck took all the other ducklings. Jeffery was the only one left behind because it was to exhausted to walk and the mother duck already waited over 2 hours for the fire department to get all the duckling out of the storm drain. So I'm hoping someone can tell me the gender that knows more about ducks than me. This is my first.
