    I was wondering, I'm planning on cross my all pure bred ducks next year. They are very pure and are fully their breed. I was wondering what colors the crosses would be
    Here are the crosses
    (F) Magpie X (M) Rouen
    (F) Black Runner X (M) Pekin

    Well, since extended black and runner pattern (both in Magpie) are both dominant, your duck should have a black runner pattern, either with or without the big, since there is a recessive and a dominant version of that. Any pekin crosses are impossible to predict, since the recessive white of the pekins will not show up in your next generation, but any of a number of colors could be hiding under there.
