IMPORTANT ORDERING INFORMATION: Eggs are collected fresh from our breeding flock and shipped by USPS Priority Mail. Hatching Eggs are labeled with breed code to help with ID during incubation. Eggs can be shipped year-round, but please use your own discretion when ordering during extreme weather. We guarantee that your eggs will arrive unbroken but will not guarantee your hatching success because of the many variables with shipping, incubating, and hatching. Breakage must be reported upon arrival.
Black Swedish Ducks are a variant of Blue Swedish Ducks. Each will have feathers ranging from black to dark blue on the body and head with white on the chest. The egg color is usually white but could also be shades of light green, gray, or blue. The annual rate of lay ranges from 130 to 180 eggs. Mature weight averages from 5 to 6.25 pounds. The Swedish ducks are generally known to be a great sustainable starter duck because they have a mostly calm personality, but it should be noted that during mating season, they may become more aggressive or agitated.
