What colour is this call?

My friend says hes black bibbed, but the bib is too big. I think hes part chocolate, as the body is too brown compared to the head. Hes my new outcross from my snowys, hes breeding snowy girls, a blue and a black bibbed. I have NO IDEA about colours. The combos do my head in. I just go for little, dainty, cute and worry about colour later.

Go!

He's definitely bibbed in my opinion, maybe a little excess white, but they often do have a little more or a little less white on them.

Hmm, but pure black bibbed or with something else thrown in? The little black female with him in the top pic is a bibbed with very small bib, and she's dark all over where he is really brown. The little white patches on his face have only just started coming through, too

The male bibbed ducks often have that brownish color to them, they are recessive gene bibbed rather than the dominant gene bibbed that are pure black.

Hmmm...Sounds like Im going to get some interesting colours then! My snowys have white gene apparently because over my pekin they made pure white. So they are mixed too apparently. With everyone being a combo, I wonder whats going to come out!

It looks like he picked up recessive dusky from the snowy. Do you know what color the other parent was?

I don't know what his parents looked like, not even sure how old he is, he was a rescue. Since white patches keep coming out, I think he's young. He's not related to my other ducks at all so he makes a perfect outcross drake for them
