I've been successful at raising chickens for a couple years and now it's time to add ducks! I'd like to acquire ducklings--one drake and six ducks. I'd like to eventually have a duck raise a clutch of ducklings. I have some questions. Can any breed of drake fertilize any breed of duck? Can Muscovy drakes fertilize other ducks and vice versa? Are there breed combinations to avoid? Does someone have a recommendation for a mellow breed for the drake? Is it advisable to find a local or regional source for ducklings? Does someone have a recommendation for a reputable source? Thanks, BYC is a principal component of my learning to be a good flockster!
