muscovie colors

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have muscvies of various colors including some that appear gray. I believen that these could be considered lilac or silver. How do you tell the difference? Sorry, I am unable to post pictures. Can you help? Do you have pictures of yours? We have one male and one female this color.

I'm not much on colors but I think if you go here and start on page one you'll see the color your talking about much better than us trying to guess.  http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/130753/muscovy-keepers-share-your-pics/16500

If you can post pics we can help let you know what color they are.

True lilacs tend to look grey with a reddish/brown tone to them. They look more blue when freshly molted and more chocolate at the end of a molt

NPIP CERTIFIED! Al's Quackery is a small waterfowl farm in Southern Maine. I raise ducks, ducklings, geese, goslings and sell hatching eggs.
Ducks: Anconas (Black, Blue, Chocolate, Lavender, Lilac and Silver),  Muscovy (barred in black, blue, chocolate and combo, ripples in dark, chocolate, and blue shades, lavenders, and looneys in blue, black, chocolate and lilac)

thank you. I think they must be silver. No reddish overtones. Theyre just light gray with some small white markings around the neck. I took some pics yesterday but may be a few days before i can post them.
