- Created By: Muscovy & Mallard
Many ducks are allowed to roam in the wild free until duck hunting season. However, due to the great meat ducks produce, they are often domesticated. Any time ducks are in captivity, it tends to be rare that they will not become dinner one day. Thus, you need to get meat as large as possible. Eventually, a genius concept came about.
Scientists had the idea to breed the Domestic Muscovy with the Domestic Mallard. Usually, the American Pekin are used for breeding as they tend to have high meat production, resulting in these ducks being called “mule ducks.” This is done through artificial insemination with the Pekin usually serving as the mother. Their hybrid results in Mulards being born, with adults having a good portion of meat.
