I agree that it is too young to tell.
However, I have a pretty strong feeling that this duckling is a male.

I had a terrible time sexing mine. I was newish to ducks and had no clue since they don’t get the curly tail feather like in other breeds. But tail shape and the sounds they make can help. Boys have a wide tail (think beaver) and the girls have a pointy tail. Also boys hiss (like a dog after running) and girls make a trilling like a pigeon. But might be too soon for sounds.

Do you have others that are the same age? You could compare body size and feet size.

I dont have any other muscovys unfortunately but I do have some adult call ducks that it mingles with if that helps
