    hi,
    i have one muscovy but i would like some more i have heard that if a muscovy gets crossed with any other sort of duck
    they become non breedalble(the ducklings)i was woundering if this is true because i have one female muscovy and my khaki drake
    mated with her and i got a few duckling so i was woundering if the ducklings would me fertile or not?
    thanks phoebs

    I have heard that a muscovy cross is infertile ... but I am far from a duck expert :)
