    In general drakes will try to mate with pretty much anything...

    All of the mallard derived domestic ducks can cross breed and usually have fertile offspring.

    Mallards (and most derivatives) can cross breed with a lot of other duck species (including muscovies) but their offspring is usually sterile.
