Im ordering ducks from ideal in a few weeks..........if i get a mallard male and 2 mallard female and 2 snowy mallard females when they breed will they still be purebred just ill have a 50/50 chance ill get a snowy or a wild color mallard???
They will still be Mallards. The first generation will all look like normal Mallards, since Snowy is recessive. If you breed those offspring together, about 1 in 4 will be Snowy, 1 in 4 will be normal Mallard not carrying the Snowy genes, and the other 2 in 4 will again look like normal Mallards, but carry the Snowy genes.
