    Here is the hen I told you about:
    The flash kind of washed out her color

    Now the ones I'm keeping for sure:

    My drake:

    The blue fawn:

    A pale version of my drake - not sure what it will do to the blue color, hers is nearly washed out as it is:

    Ok I love the color of yours too... hmmmmm

    I am not keeping the silver drake, I had two of them and you know where the other one went [​IMG]

    We may have to wheel and deal. How old are the "crappy" drakes you have? I will hold the black hen, the silver drake and the chocolate baby for you.

    So what do you think I will get from the silver pied and the blue fawn next spring? Will they possibly make some lavenders?

    I really can't take any credit for the colors of my birds only that I feed them well. The newest birds I got were fairly scrappy looking except for the batch the black hen came in.

    They are just what I am starting with for breeding and I keep working toward better birds. My "friend" doesn't care about color, only wants the extra males.

    Here are my crappy males LOL.. shhhh don't tell them I said that.

    These drakes are BIG, if your breeding for meat, they are your guys.

    The below will eat out of your hand and has both blue and chocolate genes, but to much white for my taste.

    Oh.. I may have more drakes as the year goes on, but right now I have some babies that I haven't sorted though yet. If you give me till spring I will know what I have and don't, maybe a bit before.

    Um, I'm not sure, but I THINK that the birds in pictures 5 and 6 in the original post are Lavender, not Silver (the bird in pic 6 looks like Lavender Pied). IaJewel, am I right? In any case, that's one of the shades of gray I like...definitely on my future list. You both have some really nice muscovies.
