    Hey BYC gang!
    So I went to a hatchery and the owner was selling hybrid ducks for $1, all because no one would buy them! Well, I can't handle seeing poor unwanted duckies, so I bought two. The owner said one was for sure a mix of a Khaki Campbell and a Saxony and the other he figured is a mix between a mallard and a call duck. They are both females and pretty cute!
    Does anyone have any guesses as to what the hybrids may be like when it comes to laying or nesting??? I have never dealt with mixed breeds before [​IMG]
    Thanks in advance for any advice y'all may provide [​IMG]

    Well...I'm gonna take a wild shot
    I think the Saxony/ khaki cross will lay approximately 250 eggs a year. She could be a good setter, or really horrible, depending on if she got more Saxony or more khaki( khakis are horrible mothers[​IMG])
    Can you post a pic of her? I'm curious to see what it looks like, especially when shes all grown( I have both types).
    Mallard and calls arent my areas, so I'll leave that one
