    I adopted a duck that is a Muscovy. I already have 1 and think it's a female. She's almost 22 weeks old. This new one I'm not sure if it's a male or female. The muscovies don't have the curl to their tail feathers. It hissed at me. The one I have has never hissed at me. It trills.
    This is Waddles the one I had already.

    Here is the new one:

    Looks like a duck, they do hiss too usually when there annoyed or scared. I honestly think you have two ducks, which is perfectly fine unless you want to breed lol

    Nice looking ladies! [​IMG]

    Usually for reference, the drakes are HUGE... to give an idea here is a great shot i got when this pair was 5mths old also whites.

    the bigger one on the right is a drake or a male the smaller one is a hen or a female. congratulations when you think the hen has dissapeared she is sitting on eggs and will hatch in 5 weeks.
