I don't really know. I never got my blue Swedish because Metzer' was out of them when I ordered sad.png but I found where your pic came from! It IS a silver/splash Swedish, just very light.

Well mine really does look like a typical white pekin. Yet as you can see, her siblings are Swedish Blue or Silver.

80856_p1070116.jpgGo google and see what you find. 

That duck is gorgeous, though mine looks more like a typical white duck. But I did manage to find posts from other people who had a white duck in a clutch of blues. Sounds like some sort of recessive gene.
