    I went to tractor supply yesterday to get chicken food and decided to get some ducklings while I was there. They had rouens, pekins, khakis, and blue and black Swedish. I got the employee to pick out the last 2 rouen ducklings that were left (I figured rouens would blend in better and have a better chance against predators when I eventually put them on the pond). The got them out of the bin and said, "do you know what kind these are?" (You could tell he thought that I was some punk teenage college kid who had no reason getting ducks). I replied," Yes sir they're rouens." He looked at me funny and then said, "naw son all these In here are called blue Swedish." He then called 2 more employees over who also tried to tell me that they were blue Swedish. After arguing with him for a while, he eventually decided to "agree to disagree" and then he said, "well some of those yellow ones are blue Swedish" with which I replied, "no sir all of the yellow ones are pekins." Some people don't have any business working there.....
    Anyway! Here's my new rouen ducklings! I'll probably drive to the next town over's TSC tomorrow and see if they have any more rouens, I mean "blue Swedish" ;)
