We have a Blue Swedish hen, a Pekin hen, and had a Rouen and two Pekin drakes (the drakes are gone now).
Somehow, we ended up with 4 Black Swedish, 1 Blue Swedish, 2 Pekin, 1 Rouen, and 1 Rouen/Pekin looking ducklings.
My question is, how on earth did I end up with Black Swedish if we only have a Blue Swedish hen? Their ‘bibs’ are different too. The ducklings have bibs from their chin to their chest, but our hen only has it on her chest.
