    I have a silver Welsh Harlequin drake and two black Ancona ducks. Their babies were cute little black ducklings [​IMG]

    They grew up to be half wild patterned and half black with white bibs [​IMG]

    I've noticed that some other mixes look similar (for instance I saw some Pekin/Ancona crosses with both patterns). Is this the genes reverting back to some earlier form? In that case I understand the wild pattern, but not the black with white bib (which I've seen in multiple crosses).

    Does anyone have pictures of mixed breeds to share?

    I don't have any mixes but I typed in "mixed breed ducks" into the BYC search box and a lot of links from old threads popped up. Might give it a try!
