Pekin vs Mallard

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Can a female Pekin that hangs with 4 male Mallards and one big white Goose that protects her, I can't tell if the goose is female or male (help) can she have fertilized eggs from them that are worth trying to hatch?

Yes, she could definitely have mated with the mallards and have fertile eggs.

You should probably also get some more females if those birds are the only ones you own - only one female to four males is going to be really hard on her.
