Could these ducks cross breed?

post #1 of 7

I have a female Pekin and a male magpie duck, I have seen him attempting to breed with her but can't reach and falls off I would like to breed them in the spring and I was wondering if there was any hope of it working

If he can't reach then I'm guessing what your saying is that she's larger than him. So if you want to breed them you may need to help him somehow. maybe hold him on if he lets you. She may not be letting and pushing him off. What is she doing while he does his thing?

Do they have a pool it maybe easier for him to breed her in water.

He probably will breed her, albeit very clumsily. I had a mallard male successfully breed a large Peking female. We even hatched some of their eggs.
So this is where my John Hancock goes? Oh wait, John Hancock? Pffft...it's Herbie Hancock ;]

Well hopefully he'll keep working at it till he finally mates with her. The females are much more receptive in water.
