    Are you sure on their age? They both seem the size of the adult duck.. Which would lead me to believe they are both boys. What do I know though :confused:

    Not sure what was meant as to comment on a drake with green hue as colour means nothing with Muscovies. It is just colour . If anything both black and whites look female but not sure of the white. Looks a bit drakish to me but would need better pictures comparing feet size or also next to the other ducks. Hard to tell on those views but he looks bigger than the other 2 . By 3 months a drake would be bigger than a standard female
