Anyone with knowledge of genetics know what these crosses will look like?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi, guys! So, I'm considering slipping an egg or two under a broody, and I've got a couple of choices (I also have a Khaki hen and 2 Mallard females, but those aren't as fascinating to me). #1. Mallard drake over Blue Runner hen. I imagine this would be a pretty interesting-looking bird, but I could very well be wrong. :) #2. Mallard drake over Cayuga hen. I'm pretty curious about how these two mixes would turn out especially since I know nothing about genetics, so if anyone would be so kind as to give me a general idea, I would love it. :D Thanks in advance!

Assuming there are no hidden or recessive genes.....

Mallard X blue runner: would inherit extended black gene, and maybe blue dilution. Should be either black or blue.

Mallard X cayugan: would inherit extended black. Should be all black.
