    I thought that my drake was done changing once he got his green head feathers in, I guess not. I think he is defiantly a mix now, I haven't found a black swedish with his coloration.

    He is 19/20 weeks old in this pic. He used to be all black. Now he has some funny light feathers on his bottom and browns coming in every where. Looking very handsom.

    That is a real good looking duck! If he's got a good personality it's a win win!

    He is just lovely. Is the drake standing next to him from the same clutch?

    I got a runner hen early this summer whose colour has changed gradually. She was a kind of off-white with a white bib, and now she's almost blue. I guess she was younger than her previous owner thought.

    Quote:The duck standing next to him is a female. They came from the same people but is 2 weeks younger. She is the rooster of our neighborhood now. She is up and quacking at sunrise. [​IMG]
