I was wondering, is it possible for there to be a chicken/duck hybrid? The reason I ask is because I have a rooster who constantly runs down my female ducks and mates with them. He's now taught the younger roosters I have to do that too. I don't think such a cross could be possible, but I've heard of guinea/chicken crosses before...so?

Nope the species are not close enough for hybridization.

A Turkey Chicken hybrid was made but it was done by artificial insemination. However it was a Rooster over a female turkey.
