    I was given all three. The two on the ground I was told werd Muscovy ducks. The other one my daughter got from a feed store and they didn't know for sure. So please help? Will they bred together? The 2 laying down are girls, the other is a male

    Quote:yes they will breed but will have sterile off spring, kinda like getting your ducks spayed and neutered with out taking them to the vet. [​IMG] but thats only if you have muscovies breeding with another breed of duck..

    The 2 really don't look Muscovy to me, though I am no expert. Look at buff orpington and blue swedish as someone else suggested. The 3rd does look rouen. They will interbreed. Do you have any other pictures? Of them standing up may help.
    Regardless, they are very pretty. [​IMG]
