Morning everyone. I rescued a muscovy yesterday. This duck had shown up at someones front door and spent a night in her veranda. There were no nearby farms and it was in a trailer park on a river which has been frozen over for awhile. It is unlikely that the duck walked or swam to her residence. The lady was more than willing to part with it. I don't raise muscovy's, so I'm not sure about the sex of this bird. Perhaps some of you can help me out? If it flew there, is it likely female? The fleshy carnuckle at the base of its bill makes me think male but its not a huge bird and it doesn't seem to have all the other fleshy face markings i've seen on pictures in this forum. Thanks for any help you can provide. I'm hoping it is female so I have a broody for my other ducks. I have this duck separate, for the time being, from the rest of my flock. Last night was chilly, -31C. It seemed to fare well in the barrel lined with straw I provided for it. It does hiss a bit if you get too close, but it tolerates me better than my other ducks.
