    I am thinking about crossbreeding other ducks with my pekins. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Wat breeds do you think will work well? (& I do want them to be the coolest looking ducks ever [​IMG] )

    I'v seen Rouens, mallards and cayugas cross with Pekins. But, I don't know if I would say they looked awesome. Mostly, they kept the other parent's coloring, but kept more of a Peking body type.

    Someone on BYC crossed a good quality chocolate runner with a Pekin and it looked pretty cool, I think.

    I had a Muscovy drake that got to one of my Pekin ducks so I put 6 of those eggs under a broody chicken and 2 hatched. So far they look pretty strange because they have not fully feathered out but some of the feathers that have come in are barred.

    Cayuga x Pekin would look pretty awesome. I think Blue Swedish x Pekin would look pretty interesting as well.

    My Mallard x Pekin duckling looked almost exactly like a black Swedish duckling

    Unfortunately I never got to see what he would look like when he was fully grown b/c he passed away soon after these last pic was taken. He was so pretty
