Are you for sure the yellow are hens?

Thanks for trying... I was hoping for someone that had experience with mallard chicks to know the difference why some are yellow and others are that brown streak.

I'm wondering if the yellow ones are hybrids. I just can't image a male muscovy mounting a small mallard female. If that's the case, then the yellows are sterile.

Do you know the size of a muscovy drake? They are HUGE...about 15 lbs or more..he is huge. the mallard female is tiny..about 1.5 lbs.

I would think the possibility of cross breeding would exist for them, but the size difference could pose some issues... then again it could make it easier... less of a fight with that much weigh...
