This probably doesnt go here but if you had these four species housed together and let them out for free range time, would they just mate with their species? Or would they hatch out sterile hybrids?

they would just "go out" with the same species because
1. Only male hybrids from turkeys and chickens hatch and only verry few ever live
2. Ducks and geese cant interbreed
3. they all should have males and females

But be warned if you only have male ducks geese turkeys they will mate and sometimes kill hens my friend just lost a hen to "duck rape"

no ducks and chickens will not produce a fertile eggs but some drakes will try. chickens and guineas can interbreed but the offspring are sterile

my goose is imprinted on me and they chicks she lives with.
at first she didn't like the chicks but now she likes them although im not sure that more then 1 goose would live well with chickens because they would know they were geese
