    2 Black Swedish, 2 Rouen (the brown ones) and the other 2 are some kind of cross, likely with Rouen. Too big to be mallard.

    Thanks. I think they get prettier every day. Here's 1 of today's pics of the Grey ones. [​IMG]

    I wonder what color the light ones really are and what would contribute to that. It's so cute how they go through that awkward growing phase and end up prettier and prettier.

    The light ones are Blue Fawns, from what I can see. It's the basic wild-type Mallard-Grey pattern with the addition of a single blue dilution gene. [​IMG]
