Cross Breed Genetics?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I was wondering, I'm planning on cross my all pure bred ducks next year. They are very pure and are fully their breed. I was wondering what colors the crosses would be
Here are the crosses
(F) Magpie X (M) Rouen
(F) Black Runner X (M) Pekin

Well, since extended black and runner pattern (both in Magpie) are both dominant, your duck should have a black runner pattern, either with or without the big, since there is a recessive and a dominant version of that. Any pekin crosses are impossible to predict, since the recessive white of the pekins will not show up in your next generation, but any of a number of colors could be hiding under there.
