    What color will the ducklings of a Lavender drake and a female chocolate runner duck look like. What color will the offspring be and what will they carry. Thanks.

    Quote:If the Genetics of the Indian Runner is the same as a Muscovy (and if thy are pure for color) then you should get 50% Chocolate, 50% "Lilac".

    I think Lilac in some if not all breeds of ducks (Muscovy being one) is actually Blue-Fawns and not a Lilac (Self Blue) as in Chickens.
