    I have a female blue Swedish and she's always been a bit bottom heavy. Sometimes she almost seems to be dragging. She lays an egg everyday and she eats good and she swims in the tub...should I be concerned?

    If you are concerned she is over weight then this may help,

    I don't think I've ever seen a blue Swedish bottom heave but I have only seen pics of them never 1 in person.

    Thank you so much for the information Miss Lydia. That is a very helpful site. Now I need to figure out how to slow down her intake! I feel like a diet guru...we have 1 dog who needs to lose weight and one dog who could stand to gain some weight and now it's the ducks' turn! LOL
    I'll try to get a good picture of her and send it.
