    This is what I got out of my eggs. I know the 3 chocolates are chocolates because I ordered them separate. Out of the other 5, I was supposed to get white, snowy, magpie, grey, bibbed, and once in a while a buff. I thought 1 was snowy, 1 grey, and 1 magpie, 1 white, and then this one stumped me, I have no clue.

    Now I'm not sure on the 1 I thought was a grey. Doesn't look like any of the grey photos. So could these all not be mated with the same colored ducks and all be mixed?

    looks like a splash to me. Also known as silver in duck color terminology, but not to be confused with silver as in the UK version of Snowy. So Splash is probably the proper terminology. The one in the upper left corner is a snowy drake.

    kswaterfowl, I am thinking you are right. I looked up some photos then when I put them away tonight I spread out his wing feathers and there is a row of light gray/silver coloring there as well as down his back. I am assuming his head will turn darker also. My grey is a male and I thought the males all had green heads, will he still get it?
