    Are you saying you have a Pekin/Muscovy cross mating with a Runner drake, or a Runner drake mating with both Pekin and Muscovy hens?

    That's called a Hinny, and domestic ducks mixed with Muscovies are always sterile, at least as far as I've ever heard. Hinnies can lay eggs, but they don't produce ducklings. Sounds like you're good to go with the Khakis, though!
