Roo trying to mate with ducks

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a pasture I put my younger Roos in that will be butchered at a later date and my peking ducks. I have one roo that bangs away at my peking hens all day every day. I know I'm not going to hatch any duckens, but other than the annoyance of seeing this stupid roo try to mate with my ducks all day, are there any negative consequences? Can his biological material interfere any way with the drakes "deposits"?

Harsh times make for strange bedfellows.  Somebody said that.  It will be more an annoyance than anything else as long as he does not go completely ballistic.  Sounds as if the boy is ready for the freezer.  A drake breeding chicken hens would be more serious as drakes have a penis whereas roosters do not.
