    Maybe I'm just not getting enough sleep during springtime on the farm... but for the life of me I can't remember my ducky color rules OR remember where I wrote it down or read it.

    Will I get sex linked ducklings by breeding a black swede drake to brown females? or only the other way 'round? I *think* its brown to black not black to brown, but looking at my birds and that handsomely marked black swede drake I'd love to be wrong.

    I believe it is a brown drake over a black duck but i'm not for sure.
