    hello ... i need some help... i got 2 muscovy drakes and 2 females also a pair of white mallard ducks and a a pair of brown ..
    so the muscovy drake mated with the mallard ducks....

    i seperated them now but i need to know how many days have to pass so as the duck eggs are not fertile from the muscovy but from her own mallard male...

    i wanted to put some eggs to my incubator but i do not want to have a sterile duclings as a result or whatever comes from that combination ... does anyone know??

    Yes the ones on the top are considered Grey (and/or mallard color) the white one are just white ones.
    This is an example of a Snowy:[​IMG]

    Those look like mallard pekin mixes, like to big to be full bred mallard( when I say full mallard I mean like 100% )

    But any way youll probably get some mule ducks.

    If you breed mule ducks with certain breeds you can get some really good meat ducks such as a Pekin/Muscovy cross

    Yes and if you breed a muscoy to a pekin they butcher those sterile offspring for meat.
