    Hi all Duck Members I have a Important Question both are my Ancona Duck's my Drake Ben is a Tri-Colored and an Overly Marked Black and White and my Hen Rey is a Chocolate and White pictures don't do her justice she is Chocolate and White in Person. But if I Decide to have Ducklings out them one day can I try?? I posted them on a Ancona Duck Group on Facebook and said not to because they are not the right coloring. But I read everywhere Online different Websites that my Colors are Very Different and Rare that you can use these both colors for breeding purposes?? Thank you 20190602_165650.jpg 20190602_165602.jpg 20190602_165216.jpg 20190602_165236.jpg 20190602_165534.jpg

    They are pretty Ducks although I'm thinking they are mixed breeds and not Ancona..:frow
    You can breed them. They should make cute Ducklings.

    Hey I saw your FB post! Funny how we overlap on social media! I think the breeding comments are around breeding to a certain standard. But they may have certain qualities that you like and want to focus on for a breeding program - I think you just have to know going into it that you have a chance of producing nonstandard or undesired color/pattern of offspring - and that means undesired to those that focus on the standard. Personally I think your male is gorgeous (really really gorgeous) and although he may not have the typical desired breed standard coloring (as others may say) someone like me who just likes Anconas in general for pets and eggs might really want more like him. I can't wait to see pics of the babies!!!
