    Hello

    I wonder if anybody of you cold give me an clue what this type is called and if it is possible that she could carry the "l" gene? She is white with *grey* and the type seemed to be pretty rare in Sweden and I donĀ“t know how it was imported to us. From England or Holland perhaps? "l" gene does not exist in our country what I know...

    Then I have an light brown Drake that I like much. What do you call this type?

    Your hen appears to be a Pied/Splash Lavender. And the drake is either a Brown/Black Pied. I'm not sure if there is a Splash Coloration in Scovys....but she sure looks more splashed than pied.
    What is the "I" gene?
    Beautiful birds!

    Additional information about the hen: I have tried to seek answers on Internet but are still confused about the type. Some call it Silver, others Pearl grey, Lavender or Cream...

    They are beautiful and unique! I wonder what their offspring will look like?
     
  6. I agree with Sam on this one! [​IMG]

    Great looking birds! I love scovies!
     
  7. [​IMG] Nice Scovies! I just started with Muscovies about a month or so ago. I just love them and am looking forward to ducklings this summer. [​IMG]
     
  8. Hello ,
    To me your hen looks to be Lavender pied and the drake looks like a chocolate pied .

    Schaman,
    Welcome to BYC!! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Your drake looks like he's got spunk to him. I've never seen any ducks like the pair you have, but they are indeed beautiful. What are their personalities like?
