    Morri...you didnt tell me you had a new duck!! Do you still have the other white one ??

    Im not good with scovies... so it has me confused.. the feet are smallish suggesting female but the face looks like a young male to me. Its maybe a bronze ... something or other- I dont know muscovy colours- just the mallard derivatives..

    As far as age- I would guess its fairly young since it doesnt have a lot of caruncles yet.
