Black East Indies drake and Wood Duck hen

Discussion in 'Ducks' started by Dipsy Doodle Doo, Feb 1, 2009.

  1. Hi! I have a Black East Indies drake and Wood Duck hen penned together simply because they are the only 2 'bantam-sized' ducks I have here.
    When the Wood Duck girl starts laying, is there a chance the eggs might be fertile?
    As far as I've seen, the WD girl won't even let the BEI near her --- won't even let him in their pool when she's swimming.
    I'm just curious.

    Thanks,

    I thinks its possible, because I have seen mallard x wood duck hybrids on the internet so i guess it is possible.
