    I saw some very beautiful ducks at the park today, and I'm curious if someone could identify them for me. I'd love to know what they are, because they're something I'd consider adding to my flock.

    I saw some breeds like Indian Runners and Muscovies, but there were these few ducks that really stood out. All 3-4 of them looked identical, so it wasn't just some mutt. They were white on the bottom and black on top like a penguin. They had a white underbelly, chins, and even adorable little white eyebrows. They were larger than the other ducks, and had thick necks. The back of their heads were iridescent black, that shone bright green in the sun.

    Does it ring a bell to anyone?

    Thanks for the reply! It looks to me from those pictures like it was a Black Swedish.
