    What color is this? Anyone want to take a stab at the genetics in play? The ducks behind him are buffs.

    I was told he is a runner/ancona cross. His mother is the blue (or is she silver...?) ancona in the pictures, with a heavy body type. I'm going to be hatching some from him to see what happens.

    What should I cross with first? I am thinking back to blue anconas and then maybe gold phase welsh harlequins. 20191121_044752.jpg 20191121_043334.jpg 20191121_043040.jpg

    I know nothing about genetics, but that’s a beautiful drake along with the other beautiful ducks!
