    this fella is around 7 weeks old, thought i'd post some pics. i'm thinging either tortora(silver and bronze together) barred or fume(blue and bronze)barred. could be wrong will have to wait and see:D he is a bit lighter or more pastel in colour in real life, the camera doesn't quite pick up the colour correctly but you get the idea.

    While I am not at all familiar with Muscovy coloring, he is beautiful. Very interesting color.

    I bet he's a blue fawn. I have a few that look like that and they end up blue fawn. I don't know where you live, but if your in the US, they aren't bronze. The barring is just that.. barring..

    im in australia. no rippling or chocolate here. its unlikeley to be lavendar. the interesting thing about him is that the "brown" is very orange for bronze colouring. it might be because of multiple dilutions going on at once, bronze, silver and barring?
