I emailed them before I even left the PO and they are going to credit me for the duckling.

I think I got 2 blacks, 1 blue, 2 lavender? 1 solid white? and a bunch of chocolates

Oh my GOSH, Lainey! They are sooo cute!!!!

When I asked about lavenders, they said they didn't have a lot of breeding lavenders, so if one by chance hatches, they would keep it.

Your blue one is addddoooooorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrable!!!!!

How exciting. Did you know that the Anconas came pure white??? It is kind of fun to have a pure white one, though I will admit, I was a BIT disappointed at first.

I LOVE the one you have that has LOTS of black on him/her.....adorable!

I am so happy for US!

Really subtle blues then maybe? I think one of the ones I originally thought was a chocolate might be a black and I am not 100% convinced the white one is actually white, it seems kind of creamier than the yellow parts on the other ducklings *shrugs* gonna have to wait and see

Yes it is a grey looking marking usually when the duck is grown folks often confuse the silver with a lavender especially if the lav is light colored. Yours looks to be very pale and should be beautiful. A solid white is near to impossible to get because of the required recessive white genes and the Anconas are so colored heavy in gene makeup it would be a one in a 1/2 million odds if possible at all.
