    Hi all! After my Khaki "Quackers" mate was murdered by a hawk I got her a new husband. However as he has grown we realized he is NOT a Khaki. Will they still bang? Thanks for any info! [​IMG]

    Seems you got a muscovy. Yes, they will still mate, but any offspring they produce will be infertile, since the parents are two different species.

    Yes, they will still mate. Ducks generally dont care about breed differences.
