    Pretty! I didn't know what a hybrid was in the duck world. So if it's half goose, and half duck, can they reproduce?

    Quote:*** I'm no duck expert but I believe Egyptian Geese are in the Shelduck family. Which makes them similar to a duck. I do not believe the hybrids could reproduce but I'm not positive.
