    K I don't know that I spelled that like it sounds in my head. lol Anyway my question is I had 2 groups of muscovy ducklings (musclings). the first group was 4. 3 of which were huge at about 2 weeks compared to the 1. So I assume 3 drakes 1 hen. Question is group 2 is only a week younger than group one. I gave away the 3 drakes. The 5 in group 2 are all the same size as the hen of group 1. Does that mean there is a good chance they are hens also? I mean at 3 weeks old for group 2 they should be same size as 4 week old group 1 right? lol sorry if this is confusing.
