Hatchery magpie ducks?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I would really like a magpie duck for a pet, not for showing. I would really like a magpie duck with very little black, like a couple spots near the breast, head, etc. So, what about hatcheries?

Your looking for a black and white Ancona duck. I wasn't certain about the difference either for a while, but here's the difference

Magpie ducks truely all have about the same amount of black. They have a black cap with a black saddle back and usually some other black feathers on the body.

A Black and white Ancona has maybe a black cap then irregular spots of black over the body, this is where the duck will have little black and a lot more white.
