    Usually I'm good at sexing but I'm having trouble with these two.

    Nymeria (8 months old)

    For size reference, she's laying near a male pekin and a 4-ish month old male muscovy.

    Sorry if it's hard to tell from the pics!


    I think they're girls but I'm having doubts and want to be positive. hopefully they are girls because they're named Nymeria and Myrcella lol [​IMG]

    I would say Nymeria is definitely a female because of how small her carruncles are at 8 months old. And Myrcella....I would think female because you'll usually see the carruncles starting on a male by now. I could be wrong though! My dad's the duck person, mine are coming in a couple months!
