    I see black and whites on 3 of gem and your lighter one looks to be a lavender. The 4th pic I posted with the lighter colored duck is a lavender.

    They are white. Although the seller said he has been getting 10% or so hatching grey. (Not sure about dorking genetics... [​IMG] ) All parents are white. It was all I could find in the VA area and her dad is coming out in a month and a half to pick them up, so white/grey it is! They have some cool looking ones on some hatchery pages but they are all sold out for the year. I like hatching and my daughter thought it would be cool to have "her" chickens here and some there...so dorkings we hatch!

    I love my Dorkings! They are wonderful birds. They are sexable at hatch which is great as knowing gender is second in anticipation only to how many hatch! [​IMG] Are you getting red or Silver? Ours are Silver grays.
