    There are so many arent there. My final descision was to go with the two colours I had the most trouble finding. Cinnamon and Harlquin are what they are known as here in Australia- but I havent seen any pics of them on here yet. The males are quite similar to a trout drake - but the females are very different.

    Heres a pic of my mixed colours. White, Cinnamon, Fawn, blue dusky,and black..oh and their is a little pekin drakeling in their somewhere too.

    They are pretty cute:). Yeah I'm between a fawn and white, and a chocolate. Part of me thinks it would be really cute to get a chocolate runner to match my Australian shepherd. The blacks green is really pretty too though.

    Nettie has a bunch of different colors - just wait till she gets on here. Rainplace also has black runners. I had a fawn and white drake but he was killed about three months ago.

    I have four fawn/white and 3 black. I think they are all females... so I'm looking for a drake. I think my same pictures have been on here quite a bit but here we go again. I love both the colors I have but would like to have other colors too.

    Tia - I love your fawn and white. Out here our fawn and white are very diffent. But I prefer the lighter fawn colour with out the much darker penciling or lacing on the feathers. She is gorgeous.

    Very pretty birds! I think your Fawn and Whites there are the same as in the UK/Europe. They are what we call Pencilled here in the US. Our Fawn and Whites here are Pencilled with double blue dilution, hence they are so much lighter. You got some gorgeous ducks! Those colors you got are all pretty hard to come by here.
