    hi there! I have 2 Muscovy ducklings about a month old (one may be a few days older than the other) but I was wondering if there was any way I could tell the gender at this age or is it still too soon?
    I have attached a few photos of my babies :)

    @Miss Lydia

    Are both the parents muscovy?

    A few more weeks they'll be obvious. At around 7-8 weeks of age males are nearly double the size of females.
