    I'm in love with the Welsh Harlequin breed and want to get females; if they mate with my Mallard will the babies retain the ability to fly? Thanks!
     

  2. They should get a bit heavier so my answer is no.....
    I have a Call cross hen and she can not fly....Pekin cross....Not big/not small.....Mallard sized I would say..
