I just realized that in my replies that I said I have blue swedes. I wrote in my signature line that I have black swedes, which is what color they are are but they were sold to me as blue. I know that you get black and blue colors from the blues when you breed them but the lady didn't have a single blue colored duck on her property. I wasn't going for SOP when I bought them but I would like to figure it out. Will I maybe get some blues from their babies? The lady I bought them from had both swedish looking ducks and rouens and insisted they were called "Blue SUEDES" and then proceeded to tell me that you will get all colors, including rouen colored ducks with the white bibs. Obviously she didn't have a grasp on genetics (or who was mating with who) but it was a good start for me to get young adult ducks for $5 each that were just beginning to lay. I do however want to have ducks that will eventually look more like the SOP for swedes. My two ducks look very close to the pictures you see in hatchery catalogs just a little too much white on their heads but my drake is not even close, he is mostly white with black (greenish) spots and orange and black feet and bill. He is really cute though, and very sweet to the ducks. Maybe he is the 'splash' color that I hear you get sometimes? What would you call them other then mixed up? Maybe it is not that important but, I do love the blue colored birds and hope that some of my babies will turn out to be blue. I think I should just call them black and then see what I get. Sorry if these are dumb questions!
