    I put some khaki X rouen eggs in the bator. (mothers are khakis, and father is a rouen) Since the drake is a dark color, and the hens are a light color, would that mean I would get sexlinked ducklings?

    Duckgirl89, you need it the other way round to get sexlinked babies - Khaki father and Rouen mother. With what you have all the offspring will be coloured like Mallards (or Rouens - it's the same pattern).

    I dont really care what they look like since im only keeping two babies as pets. And thank you so much. So they will look nothing like the khakis? At all? (not that I care)​

    No, not like Khakis. They should all look like Rouens. But if you crossed those babies you might get some that look like Khakis (and some that were like mallards, some like chocolate mallards and some that were like Dark Campbells). [​IMG]
