    Heys guys, I've been going crazy trying to find some good pics of mixed breed ducks...I can't seem to find any that really tell me what I could expect from say a "Mallard/pekin" cross etc. ...So I thought, why not start a thread for pics of crossed or mixed ducks? It would be interesting to see what results from such crosses, don't you think [​IMG] ...Of course if this thread already exists I do apologize [​IMG]

    They are black swedish/buff duck mixes. I got a very large color combo.

    Here are a few more, this one grew to have a deformed beak, but seems to get along okay.

    I don't have Mallard/Pekin cross but I do have a Rouen/Pekin cross. She was the only egg that hatched this summer. All the others were pure Rouen. I think she's wonderful and my daughter's have named her "Spot". [​IMG] She's the one in the middle... this picture was taken after they were caught in the garden raiding the tomatoes [​IMG]

    These girls have a Mallard dad and a Pekin mom.. every bit as large as a Pekin hen, Mallard coloring... nothing to exciting. I can't wait to see if the eggs will be white or green tinted!
