There was a thread on here a while back about chickens crossing with turkeys. Rare, but it does happen. The offspring is sterile (and sort of homely, but cute).

They cannot breed each other. Here is a post from John Metzer that made be laugh. I just quote his comment:

A goose cannot fertilize a duck. So he is mounting the ducks out of adolescent frustration and learning. He thinks he is a duck so they are the closest thing with which he can learn. This will probably continue until a female goose is introduced. In the future, it will probably only occur in the spring, the natural breeding season. Due to the size difference he may hurt the ducks so you will have to monitor that. But don't worry, you won't have any goocks or deese hatching.
