this is something I have never tried or ever thought about. however with a new market for duck products I have to change my way of doing business. I have raised muscovys and have never crossed them, don't want mules. i have selected the better qualities and breed for larger meat purposes. I am now looking at a large egg market which muscovys can only handle during the summer. So I am going with runner ducks, since I got 8 - 2week old ducklings for $2. however they are slender and not great for meat producton. I also have 5 pekins, (kidswanted AFLAC ducks) 1 drake and 4 hens cost $10. If I crossed the pekin drake with the runner hens - would I get a larger duck that still lays well?
