These medium weight birds have white bibs and on good specimens the outer 2 primaries on the wings are also white. Like many fowl, they do not breed true in the Blue form, so that out of a breeding of 2 Blues you will get 50 percent Blue, 25 percent Black and 25 percent Silver or Splash.

These ducks are hardy and are good foragers.
