    Hey

    New to the forum here. We are just starting a little "hobby" farm with emphasis on ducks. We have one male Blue Swedish (Love him) and two males/one female Rouens. I am looking for some ducklings or some adult females of either breed. We also have some Pekin Ducks but heart belongs to the Blues LOL.

    Also if anyone knows what to look for sexing the Blue Swedish that would be great. We were told ours was male based on the fact he was "quiet". Would like to know if there is a better way to know.

    We are in North Carolina so would be nice to not have to ship long distances.

    Thanks for looking....looking forward to getting to know some fellow Duckies.

    When the male is in nuptial plumage, which is only part of the year, his head will be a darker blue and he will have a couple of little curls on his tail.

    Once the Swedish are half grown, the females will start to quack and can be rather loud. The males sound a bit like they have laryngitis.
