    yes, the body looks like Blue Swedish female, but her bill looks different colored. Maybe a mix of mostly Blue Swedish.

    I would also say blue swedish, but I'm not experienced enough with pictures to know by looking at it that it is a female, especially since you did not say how old it is. The way you can tell for sure is by the sound it makes. If it has a loud quack, then it is a duck, and if it is a hoarse whisper it is a drake. I see no drake feathers, so I would think drake, but not knowing how old it is makes that hard to determine from a picture.
     
  7. i have blue swede mutts, and it looks pretty similar, except mine dont have the white near the beak, or the eyeliner. Pretty duckie!
