From its inauguration (as The Waterfowl Club) in 1887, the British Waterfowl Association has continued to play the key role in producing the Waterfowl Standards, from the first Indian Runner Standard of 1901 to this 2008 edition. The new edition contains major revisions in format, terminology, historical information and structure, including graded judging defects and colour genotypes.

168 pages, fully illustrated, 200 pictures of all the breeds and colours
All the Ducks and Geese in one pocket-sized A5 volume

New breeds and colours - Graded judging defects - Historical information - Colour genotypes
£12 + £2.50 postage from the BWA at www.waterfowl.org.uk

"The BWA is now in a position to publish a more up-to-date and consistent set of Waterfowl Standards than at any previous time. Indeed, the Poultry Club has used, almost unchanged, the material from the BWA reports on Heavy, Light and Bantam Ducks."
New book - Colour Breeding in Domestic Ducks
Colour Breeding in Domestic Ducks is a simple, illustrated guide for waterfowl enthusiasts, helping them to understand the wealth of colour forms and markings that determine many of the breeds derived from the common mallard. Only a small number of genes affect the inheritance of duck plumage colour. By understanding the alternative genes and their interaction, we are able to manage the colour forms, correct breed faults and introduce new genes into what may be dangerously inbred flocks.
In colour throughout, 48pp plus covers, A4. Very well illustrated with the main duck colours which span the breeds.
