    I just got to Rounes for my Mallard Male both about 5 months. Will the male (Mallard) Be able to successfully mate with the girls given the size difference???

    I've seen my male mallard mate with my pekin girls and I've heard of crosses so I would think so (unless you have girls he likes better)

    Yes. Mallards have been known to breed with other large breeds as well. Basically, if he fancies one of your Rouen girls, he will mate with her (and drakes certainly do fancy their females! [​IMG])
