    We were told this was a male and female muscovy pair. To be honest, the bunnies we got from the same person, (at the same time) we later found to be sexed inaccurately). Are they even muscovies? Any idea on the sex or how we can?

    Any idea on the sex?
    We were told a pair but they both look the same to us feather wise.

    One larger than the other? That’s the best way to tell sex if they are same age. Females also trill drake huff.

    Do you know their ages? Maybe 10-12 weeks maybe younger usually around 6 weeks the drakes begin to out grow the females but it can be really hard to sex them. Pics from side view whole body and front view so we can see where the legs sit under them. @oldhenlikesdogs @Claires Poultry

    They are pure Muscovy. As for sex, hard to say for sure. Can you post more pictures like @Miss Lydia suggested?
