    I guess my 2 blues are imprinted on me. They follow me around everywhere and I have to sneak off to get a break. Will they stop doing this when they get older? Sheesh, I hope so. They are as cute as can be, but sometimes I have to do things without them, lol.

    Boy. Mine make a whispery, raspy quack, as compared to girls with a louder quack.

    Well I saw my first blue Swedish today, in the middle of the road on a busy 55 mph highway of all places! I have one ordered for aug but I've only ever seen black. I'm super excited to get her. I almost picked the one out of the middle of the road but it started taking off when I parked my car and opened the door to get out. I'd hate to see him as road kill. There was also a Muscovy in the road with him but when he saw cars coming he flew off

    I have 2 Swedish Blues and 1 Mallard. The Swedes are a little skittish and completely freak if I pick them up. If I take one away from the group, my loud-mouthed one (Spot) squeaks like a maniac. :)

    This was their first outdoor excursion last Sunday (6/9/13)

    This was when I first got them - they were about a week old.

    Again - one of the first pics I took of them after I first got them. :)

    Ya, I'm surprised too how quiet ducks are. My male is whispery and gosh, the girls are louder! Glad it's not that way with the human species! [​IMG]
