Last summer (January) I bought a mix batch of Pekin and Swedish Blue eggs. The seller marked the eggs by breed for us. I had a white duckling hatch out of an egg marked as Swedish. I gave the pekins away to my aunt but kept the Swedes and the white duckling, thinking that maybe it's possible to get white Swedes. Now that she's fully grown however, she really does just look like a pekin to me. She's just hatched her first clutch. Out of 17 babies 8 are fully white with a bit of blue on their bills. The rest look like blue and silver Swedes. Every duck I've seen identified as a Pekin Swedish Blue cross has been all blotchy with white and blue colour. But these little guys just look pekin or swedish, nothing blotchy or mutt about them. So, what breed is by duck?
