    I have what I believe is a lilac runner duckling, father was lavender and mother was chocolate, does anyone have any pics of lilac runners as ducklings and as adults, I’ll try and post pics of him sometime I have no batteries for my camera at the moment.

    Quote:Are you sure that the father is pure Self-blue (Lavender)?

    Self-blue (lavender) X Chocolate = 100% black ducklings, all carry pastel, drakelets will carry chocolate.
    Lilac (Blue-Fawn) X Chocolate = 50% chocolate ducklings, 50% lilac ducklings.
    Blue X Chocolate = 50% black, 50% blue ducklings, drakelets that carry chocolate.

    He is either Lavender or Lilac I was told lavender he is not blue or splash he is a light greyish with a purple tint and orangish pink legs and beak. The duckling is a silvery grey and has a slight yellow tint with a darker head and a yellow chest and black beak and legs, so I thought he may be lilac since he had a different leg color then the father duck. I'm not good with genetics and thought chocolate+Lavender=Lilac I guess I was incorrect.
