    Black Swedish?? Someone emailed me asking if we'd take her and we are hoping to add her to our family but just wondering what exactly she is.

    Also we currently have 3 ducks a mallard and 2 khaki campbells. It appears the mallard is a girl as the head never turned green, and we THINK we have 1 female khaki and 1 male khaki. Will the male khaki try to breed with all the females? Just wondering cause if we get this new duck she's a female too and that could be alot of babies LOL.

    It looks like a poorly marked Ancona or Magpie to me.

    Yes, the male will try to breed all the females. He might have a favorite or two in the process.

    The only way you would have loads of ducklings is if you incubate the eggs, or let the ducks go broody. Don't want ducklings just collect the eggs daily, no new ducks.
