    The bottom breed is a Silver Appleyard duck or maybe the darker version of a Saxony both are the same color.

    Genetics will always have some wild cards especially when it comes to mixing breeds. I would think you'd ended up with more of a blotchy mallard pattern but I'd have to track down the genetics calculator to be sure.
