    I will start. Does anybody know what color my drake is in this picture? I was told a Lilac by the gal that sold him to me.

    Yes lilac (same as blue fawn). Tones of light chocolate combined with blues

    Would he be considered a pied or is there not enough white?

    And I'd like to get some eggs from you this Summer after I get my incubator working correctly or I just splurge and buy a cabinet incubator.

    I have had a terrible time with the temperature. I just can't find a way to properly calibrate it as I have bought so many thermometers only to have them all giving me a different temperature. Ugh!

    He looks more like a bibbed (just a messy one) but the amount of white on his body that I can't see would determine that.

    Do you want me to add you to the list for eggs?

    That lilac is gorgeous and the markings on the b&w are really sharp! Glad I found an appropriate thread about color questions. These are my newest additions - are they buff?
