Now that's what we call a Heinz duck - 57 varieties of duck went into creating that one.

We'll need a profile of the tush to look for the tale-tell drake feather.

Scovies dont have drake feathers on their tails. Drakes have bigger feet & are pretty much double the size of the females, and they usually have a tell tale sign of a red bump above the base of the bill as the caruncles are starting to form.

I was going to say muscovy male becuase of the size of those footsies! I mean GEEZ! but then the lack of carnucles around the eye and face lead me to want to say female. Guess we'll just have to wait for better pictures.

It's a muscovy. I'm not sure on gender. I tell my young ones apart by size. The males really are huge! The females are more the size of regular ducks.

You will really like muscovies. They have sweet, silly personalities. They don't quack, so you will hardly ever hear them. I just love mine!

Scovy...you would have to listen to it to know the gender. Boys hiss. The feet do kind of say "boy" though. If it grows in to them it is going to be huge! LOL
