    This is our roughly four month old muscovy.
    We are hoping for a girl, but I have my doubts.

    Do you have other Muscovies? How does this one compare in size to them? About how much does this one weigh?

    Definitely a hen. My four month old pair (one male, one female) are about the same size/age as yours. My hen has caruncles that look like yours, not much there. The male already had it all over his face and around his eye. So, I vote girl!!

    She is very pretty.
