    Our Black Swedish Duck has been laying on eggs for awhile and today when we went to check on her we found three babies!! I keep on looking in on her but she won't let me see them [​IMG] One baby is all yellow though, not like the other yellow and black babies.

    Congrats! My Blue Swede is all done with 12. I have a rainbow of colors. The say they don't breed true. I have one all yellow, a bunch of buff types. One black with yellow chest, wing tips, and feet. They others all appear to be blue.

    They are so freaking cute. I keep going out just to watch them. They are all running around and they are only from 3 days to a couple of hours old.

    Job well done!
