    They are very friendly & are beautiful swimming & playing in the pond.

    I have an idea, but would like another opinion. Male or female?

    The one with the red on the face is a muscovy and the other is some kind of crested.

    the white one on the left is a pekin. I think it is a male because i think i see a drake feather in the first photo. the second duck is a muscovy. he is also a male.

    I had pretty much guessed what you're telling me...just not sure if Duckie is a "Duckie" or a "Mr. Duck" (the white crested on the left)

    I agree it's a Mr. Drake since I can see his drake curl feather.

    you can also tell the sex of your crested duck by the quack. If it's whispery or raspy sounding, it's a boy. If it's incredibly loud typical sounding QUACK it's a girl.
