Ok Muscovy lovers - it would REALLY help us to know... Is our new little duckling really a girl? S/he was vent sexed as female "can't promise but nothing popped out" by an awesome bird vet. Now that we have her/im home we are still a bit worried. She/he has quite a long tail (looks a bit like a young peacock to us). The feet and legs seem big too - though we only have our runner duck and welsh harlequin for comparison. S/he has a bit of a pinkish area at the top of the beak (see pic). Her/is feathers (mostly in including wings with the last whisps of down vanishing - flight feathers about half way out of their sheaths but no flight yet) have a lovely purple/green sheen. As for noises - talks constantly, lots of chortling then cries like a baby when separated from our other ducks, but the part that makes us nervous is that s/he hisses, raises crest and tail wags often when threatened by our hens and other ducks. Also she/he is (as you can see) tiny compared to our other birds but is already pushing them around. Your thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I can also try to take better pics of the feet (sorry the below pics arn't great). Sweet little thing and of course we are hoping girl (poor unwanted fellows).
