Here are two of my newest Scovy girls fm early springs hatch.

What would you call the lighter girls color? That brown shading is throwing me off & I'm wondering if that will molt out fm her juvenile feathering.









And here's my pretty little chocolate pied! She's a onery one!

How old are your birds? I have posted two times in the last week trying to get an age on my new scovies and no one replies
I am also trying to figure out one that is that same light blue silvery color
Only mine looks to be pied.

They are about 8wks old. She was all yellow as a duckling and I thought she was going to be white. I've not had one this light blue before and wonder if she isn't going to darken up with her next molt.

She looks like a beautiful Silver
The tan-ish color will most likely go away after her juvenile molt. all of my silver's start out yellow/beige-colored.

Your Chocolate Pied looks Black in the pictures, maybe it's just the light?

i have a silver drake moulting out at the moment around 16 weeks old. he has the brown colour too(nearly gone now), i have read that this happens from the barring gene and possibly because he carries bronze as well.

Ahhhh, silver!
TKS Bleenie! I was hoping for a silver but didn't want my hopes to get to high.
It is the lighting that makes that first pic of my chocolate pied look black. She is def. a rich chocolate just not a light one. I'll see if I have any other pic's of her.

Hi Hoss! I typically don't sell hatching eggs since I really don't want to ship BUT if you are willing to come down for them .... or a few ducklings
I can let you know when I have some avail. I've got two hatches due this month then prob. will quit for the year so will have plenty of Scovy egg after that.

ian, thanks for the info. I was wondering why she looked a bit barred right now but with that light color it was difficult to determine. I thought her mom was a favorite black barred, (Charlotte pic'd in my avatar) I had that I lost to a predator earlier this month.
The barring gene seems to do all kinds of interesting things to Scovy color patterns.
