    Silver or Pearl-gray is 2 doses of Blue dilution N
    So 2 Blue muscovies would give you 25% silver (50% blue, 25% black/normal).

    Light lavender is 1 dose of blue N/n+ combined with lavender.
    Cross a blue with a lavender and then backcross to lavender.

    For more muscovy genetics see:
