    By mule I mean a Muscovy/mallard or mallard derived breed cross - such birds are sterile and frequently hens do not lay eggs. Muscovy hens are not particularly large, and I doubt that the bird pictured is mature.

    No hes is not completely mature I tthink he's like a litter over 8 wks. I am assuming that he's a he though. How do you know if they're a male or fmale though?

    does either one of them have a curled feather on they're tail. That's a sign of a male and female have a really load quack. The black one looks female to me but I'm not really great at it.
