    Hi all,
    I need help from call breeders. I got this pretty little baby from breeding my blue-fawn to blue-fawn. I call it a silver apricot but can't seem to find real pics of silver or apricot call ducks. Also, any guesses as to sex? I was thinking male??? I ended up with 2 grey, 2 silver apricot (I think) and 6 blue-fawn. I know the bill is a little long, I got about 3 with nice short bills and 2 are a little bigger bodied than I'd like. Thanks in advance, Kat

    I think you have a pastel female here, which would be consistent with a blue fawn to blue fawn cross. You should be able to expect some pastel offspring out of those.

    Ok Thanks.
    So the blueish silver with peachy is actually pastel, butterscotch girls are peachy but with white and without the blue/silver....Pastel buys have a charcoal blue head but butterscotch have a pale blue head? So does anyone have a picture of silvers or apricots? I really love the color of this little duck, I'd love to see the difference.
