    as my signature reads i have 4 mallard/pekin cross that look like black swedish. anybody know why? how does black get in with a white duck and a mallard duck. and also one is all black and to be honest only one of them really looks like a typical black swedish all but one have a bit less white than most normal black swedish.

    White birds can carry a variety of different color genes masked under the "White".
