    Hello all
    I have my white call female with my blue fawn call male and I was wondering if anyone had any idea of what I will get from this crossing? I have crossed this white hen with a gray male and gotten black bibbed ducklings. Will these ducklings from this blue fawn x white be bibbed also?
    Thanks

    Wish I were better at the genetics stuff. I think calls are just the sweetest looking little ducks.... I have runners and buffs, and they are lovely, too. Somehow calls weren't on my radar till after I got the runners.

    Yeah I know what you mean about not being so sure about genetics… I am just really looking forward to the results of this cross. I’m sure others have crossed Blue Fawns and Whites before I was just wondering if they would share their results. Anyways I think runners a really neat ducks and they come in so many colors just like the Calls do but I was sold on the Calls for their small size.
    Heres a few pics of some of my lil Calls

    If I didn't have ducks for eggs- I'd love calls. They are so adorable!

    Yeah I have my chickens for eggs so I don’t have to depend on my Calls. Its not that they are bad layers they just aren’t really all that reliable and my girls go broody all the time so it’s pretty inconsistent. But they make great moms… [​IMG] so its all good

    Here is a link to the site you want to look at to find out. The cross looks to me like it would produce gray (mallard) and blue fawn (blue mallard). http://kippenjungle.nl/kruisingEend.html
    Its a great site!

    Remember that White ducks can still have recessive color genes. These might pop up in the offspring.
