    Well, there is this symbol up above [​IMG]


    I click on that and then I can upload pics from my computer. There used to be a restriction, though, for new members…give it a try. You may need to have some number of posts before you can upload photo's. But you and I should be able to "talk" back and forth on this thread so you can reach the threshold. Give it a try and let me know. I will be up for a few more minutes.

    Ok it still won't let me post pics but I'll figure it out and just a discription of the young muscovy he dose have noticably larger feet then the rest he is noticibly bigger and dosnt yet have his flight feathers like the rest of his siblings but when the others nip at him he makes the (quack) that my adult females do?

    Like when they chase eachother around to claim dominance and the winner comes back and they all start a big conversation of tail waging and twittering and then in his peep I can hear a faint hiss

    Females hiss to so that can't always be an indicator.

    By 8 weeks there is usually a noticeable difference in the duck and drake in size.
