    Anyone out there with Blue cayugas?
    I have 6 black ones, but got a blue ducklings from one of the eggs!
    I am thinking that maybe my blue swedish drake snuck in there as the egg this little girl hatched out of was definitely cayuga (it was black).
    Here is a picture. The other swedish I've hatched all had more pronounced bibs which leads me to think she is pure cayuga. I am still learning the genetics, and I'm pretty sure you can't get a blue from 2 black ducks, right?
    So confusing! I suppose I'll have to wait for her to feather to find out for sure, but I just wanted to get other's opinions [​IMG]

    You may want to try pm'ing Sebrightmom. She is building a blue cayuga flock and knows what blue cayuga ducklings look like.

    It's precious, no matter what it is!!
