Hello I need a little help trying to figure out colors on three of my adults and their babies if possible! ^^ I bought a Blue Fawn pair, but after a while I noticed my pastel/grey pair I bought looked near identical except for the male. I’m not sure you can get a mixed of colors? I’m still trying to figure out genetics, if there are any articles please link me to them, that would be much appreciated!! ^^
The first two are supposed to be Blue dawn. I can see the male is but that female I’m not sure.
The next two pictures are the ducks that we’re sold to me as Pastel Greys. Which I’m not sure that’s what that are. They had a Pastel dad, and a grey mother supposedly.
The last four are what came from the trio, Blue Fawn dad to the Blue Fawn (?) female and Pastel Grey (?) female. 2nd and 4th pic.
I think the yellow duckling (Pic 5) is pastel? I’m not sure about the duckling below it (pic 6)
The last two pictures are the ducklings that hatched yesterday from the same pair. I’ve got two nearly solid browns, and two darker normals, and one yellow so far.
If y’all have any guess as to what I have I’d love to hear from y’all! ^^
Thanks!

The first two are supposed to be Blue dawn. I can see the male is but that female I’m not sure.

They do both appear to be blue fawn.

The next two pictures are the ducks that we’re sold to me as Pastel Greys. Which I’m not sure that’s what that are. They had a Pastel dad, and a grey mother supposedly.

No such thing as a 'pastel gray'. Sounds like they bred a pastel drake to a gray mother. What that would result in is all blue fawn ducklings. And they do indeed look blue fawn, so I'm guessing that it was the case.

The last four are what came from the trio, Blue Fawn dad to the Blue Fawn (?) female and Pastel Grey (?) female. 2nd and 4th pic.
I think the yellow duckling (Pic 5) is pastel? I’m not sure about the duckling below it (pic 6)

Picture 5 is pastel, picture 6 is blue fawn.

The last two pictures are the ducklings that hatched yesterday from the same pair.

Picture seven are two blue fawns (bottom), a gray (middle), and a pastel (top).

Picture eight, these are both grays :)
