    Hi everyone,


    So my daughter got 4 little duckings for an early birthday present. I'm wondering if anyone has any guesses on what colors they might turn out. The two on the left are a few days younger and they had a solid black mother. The two on the right had a solid tannish/grey mother. All four ducklings have the same dad and he was a solid silver/fawn color. Any guesses?

    Thanks for the pics! I tried to pick out 4 that looked different in hopes that they would be different when they grow up. The yellow ones have colored tails. One has a dark black/brown tail and the other have a mink/grey colored tail.

    The yellow ones with the colored tails indicate they will be barred. They are very pretty! Whatever color their tail is, that's what color they will be. Look like either black barred or silver, but it's hard to see in the pics!
    And I have no idea about the other two. I have a bunch of baby scovies that are different shades of black, brown, and chocolate. I am very anxious to see what colors they turn out as!
