Hi! Can anyone help me sex my muscovy babies? They are 4 weeks old today... i was thinking one Male and one Female but they are both pretty similar size and have the same size feet and legs so I'm pretty sure they are of the same sex. Both also have plenty of feathers coming through already.
Prior to having them I'd never even heard of a muscovy so I'm not sure what exactly to look for.... Thanks View attachment 1922384

I think my babies are eight weeks old now. Some are pretty obvious drakes or hens, with the largest or smallest feet, thickest or thinnest legs, and so on. I still have a couple which I am guessing about, though, and that is quite normal at this age. Body size can also be really helpful, but some ducks position themselves differently, making it hard to compare at first.
