So far I have not found a lot of info on breeding the blue color of ducks. If anyone has a link or a good book please point me in that direction. I have some blue Runners from Metzer that just are fabulous (the ones from Ideal are just good duck pets but definitly not good Runners!) and get so many people wanting babies or to buy what I have. I thought perhaps I would let my chickens hatch a few next year or put a few eggs in the bator. I know that I could get black, blue or silver from breeding but I have a question about what color drake I should get. I love the blacks, as well so if I breed a black Runner drake to my blue girls would I still get blue, black or silver? Or should I just breed a blue to a blue to get blue, black or silver? I do not plan to hatch many and I think I will fall totally in love with the silvers and blacks as well as the blues but I would like an answer to the question. All I have are girls right now and need to plan what to order or find a nice drake for breeding. Any help would be great. I have a nice farm for them to stay and play and really adore my 24 ducks now though I have several different breeds and plan to expand. Love eating those eggs! Thanks!
