Hi all,
Yesterday we found this duck walking around our (city) neighborhood! Seems to be a pet but still we couldn't catch it. Anyway, he/she just sat on our driveway for a while. Any ideas on breed? I only know chickens, not ducks, but was wondering is it a Muscovy? And boy or girl? If you can tell...the photos aren't too great.
Thank you!

It appears to be either a female or young male Muscovy. Very nice coloration.

How big is he? The bulk of the body would indicate male to me, so I lean more that way.
