Swedish

History

These beautiful birds have a striking appearance with wonderful black heads, white bibs and a lovely light blue body. Their blue colour apparently makes it difficult for predators to see them but in reality these ducks stand out beautifully in any garden.

Behaviour

They have a calm disposition and are active foragers. They are quite a noisy breed. The females have a loud yelling type quack, whereas the males have a low pitched tone but can raise the loudness of their quack to rival the females.

Varieties

Although Blue is the only standardized colour - the Swedish will always produce a certain percentage of black and silver offspring.
