    Hello!
    Well, I have a single female muscovy duck. She lives with my standard cochins. I've noticed the rooster trying to hump her once or twice. Can anything actually come out of that? With my scientific knowledge i'd say not, but I talked to a lady a while back who supposedly had duck/chicken hybrids. I didn't really believe her, but I figured i'd ask anyway.

    Can a dog breed with a cat and successfully make offspring? Nope. They can breed but nothing will happen. Guinea Fowl can hybridize with Chickens but ducks cannot.

    Hump? The only thing that can happen is fun for the rooster.
