    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 .
