Duck rainbow

The msucovy ducks I have presently are quite the pretty rainbow of colors!

I have a couple that are white with brownish heads and tail feathers.

This drake is grayish white with a gray head.

This one is a pretty chocolate color with striking white wings.

A pretty rippled chocolate-slate mixed coloring shows up in some of them.

And then there’s the rippling in a pure chocolate color, with some white showing up in the wings again.

A pretty bluish slate.

And one of my favorite drakes, black with a greenish shimmer and white wings. It was one like this that those idiot boys shot this winter.

Which one is your favorite?

    My favorite is the blueish slate. And I like her head and eyes, too. Very gentle and feminine face, that one.

    Such sweet babies!!…A couple of thoses brownish hens were raised by a chicken. The green drake takes after his mom and the brown ducks after their dad..the white comes from the first three you got from the farm out west I think. If you have any ideas for direct marketing the young ones let me know. My dear honey will probably raise a buch again this yr.
