    Hi,
    I have four Muscovy ducklings, about 9-10 weeks old, and I’m wondering if anyone can tell males from females from these photos. The lightest duckling has always been behind developmentally compared to the others. The woman I got them from said they were 3-4 weeks old when I picked them up in July. Also, is it clear what colors they will be? Thanks so much! 32BD8FB5-8040-40CD-97A3-6BFB3E912CB4.jpeg 5E303A2F-9BF5-4344-BDE0-E74876F40940.jpeg 711C1B9A-7B0B-45AB-94ED-32A8D3EED5EF.jpeg

    You have some very beautiful Muscovies! :love
    One of them is a blue fawn.
    @learycow knows Muscovy colors really well.

    Thank you! I love watching them. So different from the chickens. I think I might just favor ducks.

    I'm also the same as you, I love watching them and I like them way more than chickens!
