    Right so I know that moulards are Muscovy hybrids and are infertile. So are ducks which are hybrids but have no Muscovy in them are fertile? So I could successful cross my Aylesbury X Welsh harlequin ducks with my Magpie drake which would create a fertile egg and would hatch?

    All mallard derived breeds should be able to hybridize add remain fertile. Think of it like dogs! Scovies are a different species than mallards, hence why their mutts can't breed.
