    Opened up the one mandarin box and found a white duckling and a few eggs pipping! Very excited this pair produced at least one white offspring....the pairing is a White Drake over what I thought was a regular coloration hen but someone must have some white in her background [​IMG]

    I think your hen is still normal genetics. A white male over a normal hen can throw white female offspring
