    Can you mix Muscovy and Mallards without the, cross breeding?

    Not if you have drakes of both breeds. They do not care what they mate with other than they are female. And their off spring will be sterile.

    Would the same be true it I cross bred Pekin with Khaki?

    No only if you cross a Muscovy with any other domestic breed.
