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.

Rare

- Holly,

Swedish Blue Duck - Linda,

I purchased a POL swedish blue from New Forest Ducks about 10 years ago she laid 320 eggs before finally taking a month off. Her eggs where very large and had good hard shells. She was not garden friendly and quickly turned my garden to a mud patch so eventually had to be put in a pen. The only time she was ill was when she developed respiratory problems when her house became mouldy inside and needed to be replaced as it was such poor quality but she soon recovered. I had her 3 years and she was an exceptional layer.
