Blue Swedish Ducks

The Blue Swedish Ducks are a large and attractive domestic duck breed that is similar in size to the Rouen Duck. The blue coloration is a rarer coloration in any domestic poultry, and it is much more difficult to breed for. The blue often appears to be a slate or gray color, but the hues do differ. Duck breeds similar to the Blue Swedish were bred in Europe for hundreds of years. It is thought that the first Blue Swedish ducks were raised in Pomerania around 1835, which was then part of the Swedish Kingdom.

These birds make great pets because they have a calm disposition along with their typically social behaviors. They are average layers of fresh duck eggs, and they are very aesthetically appealing in a large flock with their slate blue coloration and white bibs. Like many other breeds of domestic ducks, Blue Swedish Ducks can make an excellent garden pet as they are active foragers. They will rid your garden or lawn of harmful insects.

Breeding the Blue Swedish Ducks can be challenging because blue feathered fowl do not breed true to color. When breeding a Blue Swedish male with a Blue Swedish female, you will get 50% blue, 25%, black (Black Swedish), and 25% light grey called Silver or Splash colored.

Reviewer: Raimundo Requena from San Angelo, TX United States  
Even though they took an extra day taking in the sights of Texas, they all arrived healthy. Thanks for adding that little cup of food. Better then Jet Blue where they serve no meals. :)
