    i have 3 mallards 2 rouens and 1 pekin. Too young to tell sex but was wondering if these 3 breeds can mate without injury. I was wanting to turn all of them loose together but will get rid of something if they cant breed.

    I don't think the rouens and pekings will be an issue. I would worry about the mallards being too small for a big peking or rouen drake. I just don't know though. Hopefully someone with more experience will pop in.

    I'm pretty sure they'll be fine. My Khaki drake is quite friendly with my female Mallard, and my Mallard is very small.

    My Silver Appleyard drake, whom is HUGE, over-sexed my mallard girl... [​IMG]

    So she's on permanent vacation at another duck fancier's place, recuperating. Her rear was 'hanging out' if you catch my drift.

    Just watch for signs of too much activity, and if anything happens, use common sense. [​IMG]
