Mixing Breeds

    I am allowing my duck (a female pekin) to be adopted by someone so she can have a better home. They have rouens and muscovies. Do these breeds co-exist well together? Will a new duck (1 year old) be able to "merge" into the flock?

    Thanks for any feedback.

    Yeah, ducks don't care about "breed" just as much as cats or dogs do. I have a pekin living with a cayuga and mallard just fine :)
