    Was wondering if anyone could help me figure out the sex of my four muscovy. They are about 2 1/2 months old. Thanks in advance for the help.[​IMG][​IMG][/img][​IMG]

    what am I looking for as far as determing their sex? I have read the size of their feet, the amount of red. They all look so similar to me that I can't tell.

    I think you have male, male, female and male..... Are they all the same age? the third one looks feminine and is more feathered, does that one have smaller feet than the other 3?

    When they hit ducky puberty all male ducks get a feather that curls upwards on their tail its cute they'll malt it out but it always comes back [​IMG]

    All domestics except muscovies get the curly tail feather. I really think I am right about the sex though, the third looks feminine and the other look boofy... let us know as they mature [​IMG]

    Yes the third one does have smaller feet. Not by much but a little. The 1st and last are a week ahead of the two middle ones. The last isn't fully feathered like the first and with the two middle ones the second one isn't fully feathered but the third one is.[​IMG] I can't wait. I have little baby muscovy that I bought two weeks ago and muscovys have the best personalities out of all the ducks. Close second would be my rouens.
