    Since our Muscovy genetics discussions are all over the place, I thought I would try and isolate them so we can actually learn how all these wonderful genes go together. Post your unusual Muscovy color pics here for discussion.

    My thought was a Blue-Sepia however its always good to hear other peoples opinions. Her clutch mates are 1) very true Blue-Sepia and a Sepia So I would assume she would give us some of the same. I would really like to see other breeders in the US with Sepia lines post as there are some wonderful combinations.

    Oh.. as for her white. The hen is a white head, with no other white on her lavender body. Her mom is Windy on my site. I will have to check and make sure Windy's pic is labeled with her name.

    This is Mom, Windy I bought her less then 30 days before she started laying eggs, so the Drake I have listed as Unknown on the pedigrees since it could very well be someone else's drake.
    I won't say anything on a pedigree I don't know for sure.

    This guy is in the butcher pen, he is not in my breeding program. However I thought his white was interesting. He carries the barred, Chocolate and blue genes. Im not sure however what he would be called?

    Per Miss Lydia's request: My 2 and only Muscovy drakes....

    Any input....is good. Good or bad, I have tough skin. [​IMG]
