    I have two adult Indian Runner ducks (male and female). My daughters and I decided that we wanted to hatch some of their eggs. So we now have 10 eggs with lively embryos in our new incubator. This has been a wonderful experience for all of us, and my youngest daughter is keeping a blog on the eggs for her class. Anyway, I have a question about color: if both parents are fawn/white, will the ducklings be the same? Or could possible other genes of the parents (I don't know what they are) affect color?
