Ruffle some feathers in style with Valley Hatchery’s Black Swedish Ducklings, where sophistication meets practicality in a delightful package. Originating from the heart of Germany, these medium-sized, dual-purpose ducks are the epitome of poise and versatility. Known for their docile nature, they are a perfect addition to any backyard farm or pond.
Boasting an elegantly oval head and a medium-length bill that sits almost straight on top, these ducks carry themselves with an undeniable grace, angled 20 degrees above horizontal for that extra bit of flair. The Black Swedish Duck’s plumage is an enchanting black slate color, beautifully offset by a crisp white bib, making them a standout addition to any flock.
The male Black Swedish Ducks exude a mysterious charm with their dark blue heads and a subtle greenish tint on their bills, while the females harmonize their head and bill color with their body, keeping it sleek and uniform. The fashion doesn’t stop there – both sexes strut on reddish-brown legs, artistically marked with greyish-black, a true testament to their unique beauty.
At Valley Hatchery, we take pride in offering these ducks in both the classic blue and the striking black varieties. These ducks are not just about good looks; they are also prolific layers, gifting you with 120-185 large to extra-large eggs each year, which can range from pure white to a delightful tint of color. They have a natural inclination to broodiness, perfect for those looking to naturally expand their duck families.
Weighing in at an impressive 6lbs for males and around 5lbs for females, these ducks are the perfect size for both egg production and meat. And here’s a fun fact: Black Swedish ducks breed true. When you pair a Black Swedish with another, you’re guaranteed a flock of pure Black Swedish ducklings.
Bring a touch of German elegance and reliability to your farm with Valley Hatchery’s Black Swedish Ducklings – a breed that not only looks dapper but also delivers in performance. They’re not just ducks; they’re a statement!
