    What would you call this color?
    Very white throughout the body but colored on the breast, neck, head & tail. Some 'clouding' through the body.

    I agree, I think we need a full body photo.

    (I know nothing about colourings, I don't even know the correct terminology for my own duck's colourings but I do like to look at pictures of people's babies!!!) [​IMG]

    My guess would be silver as well. I was told by my mentor that silvers sometimes get a rust color towards the head/breast which was the case with most of my first batch of silvers.

    I will get good pictures of her today. I have a Silver hen and she looks nothing like this one.

    I thought Lavender but there's no lav's in the breeding stock she came from.

    Her color is very uniform across her whole body, no hints of rusty-ish or other color in her.

    Very pretty girl, just has me wondering where she came from! [​IMG]

    Pale grey is silver and that what is what you both got..

    I crossed an "pied" silver with an blue pied drake and the results looks like yours. Interesting thing about the light brown/grey head the get.
