    Cayuga/mallard? The black on the tail and brown on the chest is what makes me think that. Im probably waaaaaay off [​IMG]

    It does look that way, but the white wouldn't make sense then...

    Hi there.

    As it turns out, the little duck is a Blue Swedish.[​IMG]

    The duck pictured is not a blue Swedish but some sort of mix. It's cute as a button but it really could be any mix because colors and patterns on mixes don't follow any rules.
