    Phil is five weeks old now and still chirping? But he only does it around me..... I'm also pretty convinced he's actually a she because she quacks/honks. Is the chirping thing normal? My step dad jokingly said he was just acting like a momma's duck.

    I have 9 week old Muscovy's that still make baby noises so I'd say Phil's voice is in the process of changing if your hearing other noises too/ quacks and honks. Well they aren't quackers but Scovy's do have adult voices. [​IMG]

    Lol, she chases the dogs. She's about the same size as the biggest one, they're chihuahuas. They just run away from her. In the picture she's quacking at them.
