Over the course of June we have realised that some of the little ducklings that hatch under Virginia were Lavender coloured (grey). This is a bit of a surprise as we have no lavender ducks. Although on closer inspection, I believe the ducks that we bought from Melton market as chocolate, were infact crossed with lavender. Although they were a lovely dark chocolate when we bought them, they have got lighter and lighter ever since, see before pictures below, and we will post a present day picture later.
Either way, I love the grey ones and am hoping at least one of them is a girl so I can home her to my friend in the village.
