Hello fellow Muscovy owners! I was wondering if anyone can give me some advice to whether you think I have a drake or female..
I currently have 2 drakes and 4 females but they are a year old so I clearly know what is what..
But with this duckling I go back and forth between drake and female..
Any clues? Thanks everyone!!

Oh and baby d as we call him/her is 5 weeks old. Grey feathers. 20181122_190737.jpg 20181122_190523.jpg 20181122_190737.jpg 20181122_190523.jpg 20181122_190459.jpg 20181122_190456.jpg 20181122_190452.jpg

Thank you so much! I'm hoping for a female as I have 2 drakes, one of which is very protective of me and wants to be pet all the time while I'm outside. And if a chicken dares to come by us for some pets too then he has gone as far as grabbing a chickens wing, which I of course had to step in and make him let go.. he is one of a kind. Lol.


I can upload more and better pics of the duckling if need be! 20181108_104225.jpg

I wasn't sure if her feet were small or not. To me, they look big. But I've never had a duckling muscovy before, so truly I don't know if his/her feet are small or large. I got the duckling from the place I got 2 of my females from. It was the only duckling in a cold barn and I knew it wouldn't make it, so I of course came home with baby d as well we've been raising her in the house since it's a cold 25°F here in Wisconsin right now, and even colder at night.. and its still November.. eeeks.

I suppose she will be inside throughout winter? Or can she go from a cozy 72°F house to 20°outside and be okay once fully feathered?

I am not one to ask about when they should go outside only answer I have is after fully feathered lol - I'll leave that to @Miss Lydia and @Jpat because I know they know how to do it.

If I could I'd keep all of mine inside with me when it would be that cold, and that's cause mine are spoiled crazies that I love and obsessively protective of them.
