    I got me some Blue Swedes Yesterday. I haven't named them yet, but I've figured out that if I give them boy names they turn out girls. Lol, So I need some good boy names.
    One of them has white on the beak rim, but I don't mind that. They are super sweet and happy to be in the house, lol. I plan on getting 2 khakis in a day or so as well. [​IMG] Ducks are a nice change from chicks...who live in another tupperware next to them. I'm crazy, lol.

    You shouldn't have to wait too long to figure out if there is a girl in there. My pekin duckling started trying to quack at 2 weeks old. Her 'brother' still only peeps. She peeps most of the time, but she is definitely trying to quack! Very cute babies by the way, mine are named 'Toot(m) and Puddle(f)'. My 4 y/o watches too much TV [​IMG]

    That's exactly what I have! Two blue swedish and two khaki campbells. I got the blues first. They turned out to be a boy and a girl. I ordered the khakis as a pair. Unfortunately my son named the blues Spot and Quackers. Quackers by chance turned out to be a female, and a loud one too! The khakis are Pat and Leo, named after our friends Pat and Leo Campbell. Here's a link to some Swedish names for you:

    Ooh wow thats a long list. Lol [​IMG]
    I plan on getting more ducks, but those are ones I esp. want to look like they are supposed to like the Indian Runners.
    I've always loved ducks so now I can get as many as I want, lol.
