    The hatchery told me she was an Ancona. After looking at pictures found using Google I'm not so sure.
    What do you all think?

    Looks like a Swedish crossbreed to me, but I'm no duck expert. [​IMG]

    Here's another of her. I think she's adorable no matter what breed but I'd like to know things like if she can fly or not and such.

    Black Swedish is what I say. Cute though, could be a mix. I have a mix of Blue Swedish and I think Cayuga, she has some feathers that are half gray and half black. interesting, only a few are like that she is mostly gray.

    Hmmm, she does look more swedish than ancona. Wonder if the hatchery would even have mix breeds. I wonder if she's a flyer....
    They hang out "free-range" in my 4ft. fenced in yard during daylight hours then sleep on my enclosed deck at night. Although, they really just hang out on the deck all most all the time, the seem scared of the grass and dirt. LOL!

    I had a drake look just like that and I ordered him as a duckling from a hatchery.
    Anconas have very weird patterns and they are ALWAYS different no two Anconas look the same.

    It could still very well be an ancona. Some have alot of black some have a lot of white. It all depends. She is very pretty though. Hatchery stock is not good quality since most breed for money not for show.
