LIFE IS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES!
Sun fade, age, molting, being dusty all can influence shade.
Often males carry choc and it shows up as an undertown.
Blue genes influence tone as well.
Lots of flavors of chocolates!
Nice chocolates! yes, i have found they vary too, i own 5 of them now, all ducks. Sadly, not been able to get a chocolate drake, we seem heavy on blue and black genetics here.
I'd wrap there is a guide in the stickies, if may not be but sure won't hurt to wrap. and the dropping wings is normal they have to build muscle to hold up those blood feathers. Love that face.
It's been awhile..... Caught this pic of one of my Scovy youngsters the other day drying off after a bath..... lol... thought... What a sassy look!
Choc is sex linked. Ducks have only 1 choc gene so the girls either have it or they don't. Drakes have a pair of choc genes so if both aren't the recessive choc gene they can be split and carry it, but won't show it. If you have choc girls and split boys... eventually you should get a choc male. Blue fawn/lilac is when both the choc and blue genes are present.
The newest chocolate i have is from a chocolate that i have. The other is from a blue that has chocolate barring. Now here is a ? for you, i have a black drake, well he was he's switched to chocolate in the last few months. That i find unreal, anyways, he was a black and white pied, insert chocolate to where that black was lol
