    I have a drake and I wasnt sure what breed he was.. I thought he was rouen but seeing another post on here got me thinking he might be a black swedish.. We just hatched ducklings of him and a pekin.. I am just curious as to what he is..

    He is pretty.
    I got one like that from a rouen/pekin cross, this is him in the photo with his hatch mate.

    He's a hatchery quality black Swedish or a Swedish cross. Not anywhere near the standard.

    Actually, unless the computer isn't showing the true color, he might be a very dark blue Swedish.

    Going by his bill I wouldnt say pure black swedish, and like Oregon blues said, his color looks slightly slate...like a blue swed...He is beautiful non the less! Can't wait for pics of the new babies you are hatching!
