    If I breed a blue drake to a black hen, would the babies be all be black? And if I breed a chocolate drake to a black hen, do I get all black? And if I breed anyother color drake besides black to a black hen, would I get any other colors besides black!?

    Storey's Guide to Raising Ducks has a great explanation of Ancona colors, and what matings will create them.
    I have been reading and re-reading it, but have no practical experience yet to really be able to explain it.
