So you might remember Sedrick from awhile ago. He was the sole hatchling from two clutches. Kerath and I have been trying to hatch him so brothers and sisters -- got about 8 in the incubator right now that seem viable (including some from Wifezilla!), so we'll see what happens. https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=4906381#p4906381 (he's in the first of the pics, with the monkey) Anyway, he's starting to get some of his adult plumage in, and ... it's weird. If you look in the link above you can see his parents. Mom was the white bibbed female, and dad was (we thought) either of the two males in that picture with her (Buff Orpington/Indian Runner hybrids), or one of these guys (blue Indian Runners in that pic). The mother is the product of the Buff female in that link, and one of those males. However ... there's some green feathers coming in. We noticed it first on his wings, when some pruplish/iridescent colors were showing up where a female mallard normally has them. He was also sort of colored like a female when he got his first feathers in. Now, though, his head is showing a lot of green, and that little bib he had as a baby had come back but is now turning green. Is it possible at all that a mallard was flying over, thought Ashton looked hot, had his way with her, then took off? So confusing. It's a pretty green so I'm fine with it. Haha. Also, this is by far the calmest duck we've raised. Since he's been solo, he's been mostly indoors. We're slowly transitioning him outside, but his grandfather really has it in for him, so we can't put him with the rest of the flock. We're hoping that he can sort of "mother" these ones we're hoping to hatch in another week or so. We'll see, I suppose. Another question we have is about poop. Lately he's been having these solid black poops that are kind of watery. It's been over a week. He's been getting his usual food and peas. Should we be worried, or is this normal?
