Some questions about the Egyptian Geese?

Is it possible for the Egyptian Geese and the African Comb Ducks to interbreed?

Does their colouring vary from season? I seem to think "Egyp" and "Tian" were darker a few months ago.

Hi Meaghan

I'm not aware of any records of interbreeding between the Comb Duck and the Egyptian Goose.

Interbreeding does occur between the indigenous Yellow-billed Duck and the exotic Mallard which is of concern as it is contaminating the genes of Southern Africa's Yellow-billed Duck population.
