    black swedish and kahki campbell? but black swedish for sure unless its a Duclair ! although it also looks like it might be black east indie/swedish. but the black AND yellow on bill leads me to think of a magpie or ancona. are the parents pure breed or mixed?

    Those legs are kind of far back. Is there runner in there anywhere?

    Nope [​IMG] on all...
    Ok... here goes...
    His/Her mommy is a Pure Cayuga
    His/Her daddy is a Non Crested white (Pekin) but carries crested genes..
    Out of maybe 75 ducklings that I've hatched, I only got one like this.. its definately a chocolate color, but can someone explain how this may have come about genetically? Someone I recently sent eggs to last month had 2 hatch out this color too.
