I bought nearly 30 day old ducks from a breeder in July. They are mostly khaki X silver appleyard. She threw in a couple of the same, of pure breed appleyard and khaki. She also mentioned, that she felt that a few of them may be magpies, as she couldn't tell the day olds apart from the cross breds. All her breedings were intentional, and her magpies were kept apart from the other breeds. The hatching was contracted to a hatchery, and when she picked up the ducklings, couldn't tell which were magpies. She had black, chocolate and blue. So....are any of these ducks magpies? What do you think? The first is a female. This one is a male: This is a different male (which I really don't think is magpie, but just getting an opinion) And this is a group, the dark ones with white bibs are what is typical of the silver appleyard x khaki for comparison (and some others, fawn and white runner crosses, just ignore them!): Thanks for your thoughts!!!
