    I'm a Muscovy breeder. The duckling could possibly be a Muscovy. The duckling does look to be a Rouen though. Could I get better pictures of the bill?

    Alright! Just what I thought! Thank you so much.

    What gender do you think the little one is? I say male my boyfriend says female.

    I couldn't tell you from pictures. I'd have to either hear it, compare it to others, or vent sex it. Best way to tell is the size. A male Muscovy will be huge at 2 months old.

    Also females develop Caruncles too! Don't freak out if your muscovy gets a Caruncle on the bill like this--->

    I made the mistake thinking it was a male and traded her for another female who had ducklings and I bought the ducklings too. She was one of the two ducks laying eggs.
