    We got 3 ducklings at TSC last Spring. 2 turned out to be Black Swedish (a pair) and the other was a Mallard.

    Pics of the Swedish grown up are on my Ducks page. You can tell slight differences on the ducks. The female had light orange patches on her feet and their beaks were different shades. Plus he was a little bigger than she was.

    I got rouens, pekins, and khaki campbells from there on the 18th. This is the first time I have brooded ducks and the grow soooo much faster than chicks. My pekins look like little duckie weight lifters, lol.
    I think each TSC will vary on what they have available. Oh, and if you don't see what you want, ask them about ordering it for you. Mine offered to do that.

    My TSC is making you buy 6 to avoid "MOMMY A DUCK! I WAAAAANT!" lol. Hopefully it will weed out all the those people.
    even though we were planning on only getting 2-4, Im guessing another person with "duck fever" will be there and we can probably split an order with one of them.
    I hope they have some swedish at my TSC! [​IMG]
