    Got my first ducks yesterday. A female(who is now called Maybelle) with 6 ducklings. The man said he thought she is a muscovy/mallard cross. Any ideas?

    deffinitaly nt a muscovey cross . First becasue she doesnt look like a muscovey cross and second muscoveys crosses are mules they are sterile . Looks like a buff/mallard mix . She looks small maybe call/mallard mix .

    :)Hey I just think the ducklings are Rouens,and the big duck looks like a Buff duck mixed,and I don`t know what else it is mixed with,unless it is Rouen mix.~~~~~~~~ But what ever ,they are so pretty!!!!,I love my ducks,I have baby Rouens and they look a lot like them.I have a Buff duck,and she looks a lot like her.Except the beak and other color.They are pretty!!!!
