    What do you get if you cross a chocolate pied drake over black/white pied hens? I'm not familiar with duck genetics.

    Okay, I might have found the answer to my question. Chocolate drake over black hens would result in:

    Black duckling = chocolate carrying male
    Chocolate duckling = female

    Is that right?

    From what I have read and what hatched from my pair last year, yes, this is correct.
