    Conrad, my 12 week old D'uccle has a very odd color. .. his dad is a millie fleur d'uccle, and mom is a white d'uccle. I'm frustrated because I wanted a normal coloring.. this guy has peach color in him, along with some black dots. . Is this a color you might be able to help me with?

    When parents are different colors, the offspring often don't meet any standardized color. That's the case here, he's a mixed color.

    X 2 - to maintain color you have to breed for it.
