Hens are typically same as bluebill/hen ruddy.. or close enough. For bluebills I use the $1 walmart gray primer.

Why do I shoot 3.5" for geese? Because they don't make a 4" yet!

Depending on which Scoter, it could be black, white, red, orange, yellow for drakes. For hens it is a mix of different colors depending on subsecies. Google earth pictures of the birds you plan to hunt and match up from there.
