Here are my Juniper & Holly - I'm looking for a Khaki Drake to breed to them this year (and to cross to my Dark Campbell hens for sex-linked ducklings)! If you're in WI and have an extra, let me know! I LOVE these girls! They were two of my very first ducks - they got me hooked!
A question for you guys....
This is my first year raising Khaki Campbells and I am getting a few black ducklings with yellow fronts. I thought at first my male pekin was sneaking into the pen and they were crossbred but this last one I know is from only Khaki Campbells. Is this a recessive? Or does it mean there is non-KC in one or both of the parents?
Some of mine have come with a lighter almost cream colored, I guess it could be considered a bib type marking. But there is no sign of it what so ever once they start to feather out. I'm just learning about colors, but would a Kahki and Pekin throw black bibbed? Are they black or deep chocolate, I wonder if you could have some Dark Campbell in there.
Annarie, do you have any pics of your DCs as babies?
Of the 4 so far, 1 is dark chocolate and getting lighter as he starts to feather, the other 3 appear black but are still all down so they may change as they feather. When I googled images of Khaki Campbell ducklings I see ducklings this color in the group photos but they never say if all in the photo are Khakis or not :-( Most of what has hatched has been the expected mid to chocolate brown color.
