    She was sold to me as a Khaki Campbell..but when she turned out a grey/blue color i thought she wasnt a Khaki..(because i thought they were all a tannish color)..but after seeing some recent posts on here about Khaki colors, i am wondering....is she a Khaki?..thaks for any help. Wendy

    IMO I think Plucky is a runner.
    Just for the body.
    But, the coloring looks almost like a splash swedish.
    Plucky looks nothing like a Khaki IMO.
    But, that doesn't mean ( for sure ) that it isn't one.

    she's a runner! that upright walk gives it away! Runners come in many many many colors... If you breed blue runners, i've read they have the same problem swedish ducks have with coloring... some come out blue, some come out black, and some come out splash. your's looks like a splash.

    Wow she is soooooo cute. It makes me want one!

    I'd say she's a mix of Khaki and Runner.
