    So I have a bit of a grasp on sex-linked ducks and I've bred some successfully in the past. I was thinking of breeding sex linked Runners next year and remembered how pretty my last batch of bibbed lilac WH x Ancona were.

    I wonder if I breed my Penciled Runner drake to a Blue Runner duck will I get lilacs with the Runner Pattern? Sounds pretty, huh?

    I know there are some folks here with amazing minds for genetics... am I way off on this?

    Thanks!

    According to the genetics calculator you have a possibility of getting the following:

    Male:
    Pied Self Blue
    Pied Self Black


    Female:
    Pied Self Lilacs
    Pied Self Chocolate

    Great blog (as usual). Very interesting and love all the pics!

    ppimf -- I don't believe your case is sex-linked genetics which is the point of this thread. I'm guessing you would get black and white pied ducklings.
