    We have a lavender drake and 2 French white ducks. Will we get pied, lighter color, or solid colors like the parents? We also have a French white drake and 2 chocolate ducks.

    Because white is incompletely dominant in muscovy, breeding white with color will result in all/mostly pied offspring. Some may simply be white with caps too.

    Learycow,

    Thank you, that's what I was hoping. I'm keeping an eye out for a lavender/blue duck for our lavender drake as well.
