    How do you tell sex with this mix? It never makes any sound that I can hear. I absolutely love this ducky. I have a feeling it's female, but it's just a feeling. It's a little bigger than my mallards, but smaller than the pekin. Can fly as good as the mallards.

    Hatched right around the end of June. It's about a week younger than my pekin who hatched June 24th. I didn't hatch it - got it as a buddy for my lone pekin duckling.

    Guessing by the size you described I would say girl. Wouldn't it be more like the size of the pekin if it were a male since scovie males tend to be larger than the girls?

    Don't know if it matters, but the hen was a muscovy and the drake was pekin.
