    The owner was unsure whether it is a male or female... Can I judge it by the tail? Or are Muscovies different? Such a pretty baby!!!

    Update: Ok i got my answer. It's a boy. I've named him Michael Jackson (it has a story behind it with the owner). And today i should be getting his female, Lisa Marie...

    WHAT COLOR IS HE?

    I would say drake.

    Maybe I should say I guess a drake......I haven't been around muscovies much since I was a kid.

    I'd say that it looks like a male to me because of the size of the caruncles. How old is he?

    Yes, that is the red on the face. The drakes have a lot more than the hens.

    The curuncles do Scream drake but the body doesnt seem very big, can you get a better picture? like out in the yard or something.

    beautiful by the way! I have 2 hens that are that same color!
