    Buff Ducks Vs. Blue Swedish Ducks

    I am not sure which one to get...which one is "better"

    What do you mean by better? What do you plan to do with them? Pets, show, eating, eggs?

    All I can do is tell you about my buff since I have never had a Swedish....

    Lana is loud. She is also cute, funny, and has a lot of personality. But yeah...what a mouth on that girl!

    She is a pretty good egg layer but does take some time off in the Winter.

    I think both the Buff and the Swedish are considered dual purpose birds...can't find info on eggs laid per year for the Swedish. For the Buff it is over 200.

    Thank you!

    Sorry I was getting my son dinner, he became hungry...

    I want them for eggs and as pets, that is it....And look wise which is better looking, in "your" mind.

    I think the black Swedish ducks are really cute. Lana is a dirt magnet and on her light colored feathers, it really shows.

    Why choose get a couple of each. If you aren't breeding then there's no problem with having one each of several varieties. [​IMG]

    my blue swede is beautiful. Her bib gets muddy, but most dirt doesn't show up.
