    GRAB IT!

    If it makes a noise, female. If it only hisses, male.

    Muscovies are harder than regular ducks because they don't really quack.

    You can also vent sex them. You sort of...turn them inside out. LOL.

    She's probably molting.

    I tried to vent sex the young ducklings - and that didn't work to well and I didn't want to hurt them --- course they were screaming like I was killing them.

    I am pretty sure #1 is male and #2 and #3 are females, also #5 and #6 - but not sure if #4 is a male or female....

    But the 8 ducklings I am LOST on! LOL!

    we love our ducks!! If I could make sure that they will lay year round - I would have only ducks and no chickens at all.
