    When you are trying to sell ducks or hatching eggs, it is easier to sell the purebreds...at least for ducks in my area. Other than that, I know a lot of us don't care. One of the best ducks I had was a khaki campbell/buff cross. She was a riot. (A hawk got her)

    I had to check to see if you were new here, and sure enough, you are. Because there are countless threads featuring mixed breed chickens that you likely have missed.
