Would someone mind giving me an idea what kind of duck this is, please?

    I purchased this duck as a baby almost two years ago from a feed store that is supplied by Ideal, I believe. She was a pretty yellow ducky with a silvery sheen to her and dark legs. She was a bit bigger than the others in the pen so I named her Grey Goose. I think she turned out to be one of the most beautiful ducks ever and would love more like her (or at least maybe a nice drake to go with her). Thanks!

    She's the white one here:

    I love her white feathers and black points. She is also fairly quiet (especially compared to the little duck lol) and easy going.

    She is beautiful!

    My hazel has a dark bill like that - she is a buff, not white. There are some runners with those colors, I think, but she would be a runner mix, I feel.

    She's a splash coloration of Ideal Poultry's Blue Swedish.

    Thanks, aprille218 and Amiga!

    I never guessed a splash - makes sense. So, to make more of her, I need either a splash drake or a blue one? She's just so pretty (IMHO).

    Thanks again!!
