    No mules from that bunch, because those are all mallard-derived domestic breeds.

    Mutts, yes, but all offspring would be able to reproduce (barring health issues) viable offspring of their own.

    Yup, as long as you don't have any muscovy, you won't have any mules. Just mutt ducks, which are fine as long as you have a plan for the offspring.

    well i will be having the rouen and peking and runner sets seperated, but i got an extra pekin male, and mallard male, that will be with the swedish, cayou and the campbell girls just wasn't sure if i sound allow them to raise a clutch if they went broody this next year. so when a duck mixes like that will the ducks be just a mix or will one be pekin and the next cayuga? thanks for all your help as this is my first year with ducks :) they are so fun

    Just mixes of the two breeds.
    Yes you can breed back to a parent. Later down the line you will want to introduce new blood.
