    I have a little mallard duck who hid her eggs from me all week last week. The first couple of days, I though maybe she was just slowing down because it was fall, then I was suspicious, but I wasn't feeling well so didn't put much effort into searching until Sunday. That sneaky little thing hid 8 eggs in an impossibly tiny space and is sitting on them. So, I might just end up with some Halloween ducklings. Question is, what will they look like? Mommy is a mallard and daddy is a tan and white runner. Anyone have any picks of this cross?

    They will probably look like a slimmer version of the mallard. Mallard coloring seems to be dominant.
