    I have some blue Swedish, 5 ducks and 2 drakes. Love them lots. 2 of my ducks have successfully raised clutches this year. I was surprised as I did not think this breed would turn out to be good mothers. As soon as I figure out how to post some pics I will.

    I would say Cayuga because he does not appear to have any white. Don't all Swedish ducks have white on their chest?

    its a swedish, I have one just like it that has almost no white bib. Blue swedish tend to give out their ducklings in 3 colors, silver, blue and black. The only duckling from this years batch came out blue so it is weird seeing it next to its black/brown brother knowing they have the same parents

    That is a gorgeous barnyard mutt. The head is Ancona-ish, but the rest, mixed. Absolutely beautiful!
    Absolutely a Cayuga drake. Also beautiful!
