    Looks like a Pekin to me.
    Muscovies look much different.
    Check some of the posts for ducks you will see the difference right away.

    The poor lady said when she bought it, they told her it was a muscovy.... when she showed up to drop it off, I immediately told her it was a pekin....

    Definately not a Muscovy...it's a Pekin, with raspy quiet quack, and with the little tail feather curl going on, she's a HE!
