    She is six months old and is the sweetest thing!

    She lives with the fun, Black Swedish girl pictured below.

    I suspect that several of you will be able to identify her for me!

    They are Blue Swedish ducks. I had several of these on my pond for years.

    Thank you for the breed ID!
    I thought that she looked a lot like her friend.

    I am so glad to learn what breed she is! She is a nice girl.
    I bought her locally from a guy who also (claimed to have) had Campbells?, Black and Blue Swedish and Welsh Harlequins. I had requested a Harlequin but I am glad that I ended up with such a sweet duck regardless!
    I spend a lot of time on here looking at the Welsh Harlequins--Wow!

    The bibs actually look fairly nice on those Sweedish, I have them too but they are hatchery quality and have horrible bibs.

    Thank you, r4eboxer! The Black Swedish was purchased from a hatchery. The Blue was a local purchase.
    I'll be looking for a Blue Swedish male this spring.

    I had two blue Swedish males but unfortunately I had a possum kill them before I got my LDG's. I have two females with terrible bibs but they are sweet as pie. I just got two new ducks from Holderreads (adult esq) and I'm going to work on hatching them out this spring. I think I have abandoned my Swedish project due to no drake. Maybe I'll come across a nice one too.
