I am new to ducks and want to try my hand at hatching some ducklings that I can sex at hatch by down color. I have read up on some of the dominant and recessive genetics for ducks but I'm still a little unclear. I know I want to breed a duck where the boys will grow out heavy and fast and the girls will lay an abundance of eggs so I would like to use Silver appleyards as one half of the duck equation but what other color/breed would fit the bill (haha)? Somewhere I read that I could use khaki campbells for the male because they have the chocolate gene but I found contradicting information elsewhere. What would you use?
