    Hi BYC gang!

    I went to a hatchery and purchased a Muscovy duckling. My Muscovy (Bam Bam is his name) is now four months old and is one of the best ducks I have ever owned. He is such an angel! I am thinking of getting some more Muscovys, but I would like to find out my duck's gender before I go buy more. I always assumed he was a boy, but I honestly am not 100% sure. Any help would be great!!
    I will insert some pictures to help y'all :)

    Just an update on the thread:
    My Muscovy duck is actually a female and not a male. I bought some more Muscovy ducks and she is already the drakes favorite hen. Hope this thread helps anyone else trying to find their Muscovy ducks sex :) [​IMG]
