    I have Pekin ducks, Call ducks and Chocolate Indian Runners. Right now they are free to swim on the pond and go where they want to. My husband will be separating the Call Ducks and Indian Runners sometime at the end of January to breed. I was told they won't breed until February but they are breeding now. And the part I am most concerned about is the Call Duck is breeding with the Indian Runners. I hate to even look because I get upset that this is happening. My husband works and by the time he gets home he doesn't have time to work outside and fix up the pens. [​IMG]

    male ducks will breed with any female duck. weather it is the same breed or not .
    just because they are mating does not affect anything if eggs are not being laid.
    it takes around 6 weeks of separation for you to ensure pure eggs tho, so keep this in mind.
