I would suppose you would get some of both. I will be trying this as well as snowy and white next spring. I really Like our grey ones, The drake has such beautiful coloring. DH likes the snowy and the white the best.
I say get both

I have one snowy drake, a really nice little guy too, but unfortunately he'll be locked in a pen next spring because I have no snowy duck for him. All my others are white. I was thinking of letting him mate with my white duck who had angle wing just to see what color I'd get. They both have really nice conformation, so whatever color it is, it'll probably be pretty. Too bad about that angle wing...

I'll be selling eggs next spring - one of my white ducks is a little egg making machine and she goes broody like a cochin!
I hatched out a really nice white drake this year too, we're gonna pair him with my two high quality ducks and try to get some good show birds for my son's 4H project.

Calls are so much fun. I started my duck obsession with runners, but after having calls I'm hooked on the bantams for good. They are so cute and funny and when I change the water in the pools in the aviary it looks liek a water park in there, splashin around having a good time! They even get along with my mandarins and wood ducks. I could watch them all for hours.

try putting them in the bathub in the house but be ready for the shower curtain to shut tight.....wow what a spray....DD did this last night getting them ready for a show this weekend, to let them get the true grit off. Man they had water everywhere before DH came in and blew a gasket! LOL

I have both grays and snowys. I've thought of this myself but have no intention on breeding them. Not sure what I'll be doing with the eggs. I've never eaten a duck egg and we get plenty of chicken eggs a day anyway.

I would also be intrested in getting some call duck eggs. If any one could help me out that would be great. I found some hens on craigslist but they were three hours away. I could have some shipped for that. thanks
