Hi all. I have a small flock of Welsh Harlequin ducks, for eggs. I am thinking of adding some Pekin ducks this year for meat production. This year i will buy ducklings, but next year i would want to breed my own. Does anyone know if this would work in a mixed flock? Would the male Pekin attempt to mate with, and possibly harm, my Welsh girls? and if i just kept some Pekin females, would i get any cross breed ducklings from them next year? Can a Welsh Harlequin male even mate with a Pekin female? I am imagining some very amusing mating attempts.
thanks for any advice.
