    3 duck eggs unpipped, 3 others working pips. 3 unpipped mutts, 1 unpipped silkie. But all the lavenders hatched so I'm happy about that!

    I love to play around with this, but only problem with it is if your colors are mixed you gotta figure that in...

    Well Juice is black, and Tiggy is black, and Opie and Chibs are splash

    So black x black = blue, and black x splash = blue. Right?

    eta - I've tried that website before, it wants more information than I know! LOL

    With bbs, black times black is black, or are you working with something different?

    Isn't one of them bibbed? I can't remember exactly what they all look like, so I'd need pics of each to tell you what they are...
    But yes, if splash is involved then blue will dominate...



    Duck colors are similar, but different... color names are different, plus pattern is figured in as well...
