A friend hatched my Call duckling in her incubator. Mama duck is all white. (Not pic of actual mama - image from Purely Poultry):

Daddy drake looks to be black bibbed. (Pic of actual drake, who won't sit still).

My lil 1 week old guy is yellow with a few spots on his back and one near his eye.

I'm just dying to know what he might grow up to look like!
 
That's a great article! I'm trying to figure it out - haha! It's fun to play with the calculator, too!
It will be very exciting to see how that cutie turns out. It will adorable either way. I am a jealous of your call duck. I would love to have one, but I don't want my neighbors to hate me 😆.

The calculators can be a lot of fun to play with. I have been spending tons of time with the muscovy calculator lately 😁.

Yeller down is usually a light color. No eye stripe so not pastel besides the fact both parents would have to have the blue gene to be pastel.
I am a guessing it will be white.
 
That'd be awesome! Even with the gray spots on it's back and face?
Well I couldn't really see anything I'd call *spots* in that picture. They will have some darker places here and there in their down.
If there are spots that are dark that I couldn't see in the picture.. I mean it's possible it might not be completely white but I bet it will still be a light color.
Here's an example of white call ducklings

I need to get a pic of him when he's wet because the spots are much darker/more obvious. But here he is at 2 weeks. There are definitely 3 distinct spots there as well as one by his eye.

*If* these hang around, what might this little one look like? It's not black. Would it be silver/gray? Or will it not "translate" to its adult feathers?
