    In a bizarre co-incidence, I've just been putting up pics of mine - LOL https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=578908

    I love the colour and lacing on your drake, Animalpro - beautiful. Your duck that is standing outside the pool (with the all-blue bill) looks really, really nice. I wouldn't mind having her myself!!!!

    Thank you!! The blue bill girl is Sophie. That's a bad picture of her though.(well a bad picture of both of the girls really) I'll get a better picture of her.​

    Some drakes only have the drake curl while they are in nuptial plumage, so it isn't the best indicator.

    This is a drake. I held onto him for awhile because of his color and lacing. I hope the lacing shows up in the photo. I've decided to move him out because of the bars across his bib. It has been a difficult decision because his color is really amazing.

    Yes, he sure is a terrific shade of blue. Very even and deep and not at all washed out, and hardly any black to speak of. Top lacing!!! You don't see lacing that good very often.
