McMurray Hatchery Blue Swedish Ducks

Blue Swedish ducks are an attractive breed known for their blue color and white 'bib' that runs from under the bill to half way down their breast. Swedish ducks also have some white on their wings that creates a very eye-appealing color contrast. 

Swedish are very hardy ducks and good foragers. Drakes will weigh around six pounds. Hens will weigh up to five pounds and will lay mostly white eggs, with the occasional blue or gray tinted egg.

Orders of 2-9 ducklings ship after April 1.

LEG BANDS - If your birds were sexed and identified with colored bands, remove the bands upon arrival.

SMALL ORDERS: Orders of 2-9 ducks and geese ship after April 1st. A small order charge of $45 will be added to all orders of less than ten ducks or geese. This fee includes boxing fees, handling, and heat packs. 


CANCELLATIONS ON WATERFOWL: Cancellations and changes to orders for waterfowl must be made by 12:00 PM (Central) on the Friday before scheduled delivery. Any cancellations or changes to waterfowl orders after that time will be charged a $10.00 late cancel fee.

THE COLOR BLUE: A unique genetic feature of this breed is the constant recurrence in the offspring of not only all blue chicks, but also the black, white, and black-white colors used in the original matings many generations ago to produce these blue birds. All of these chicks carry the blue genes and when mated black on white or with other blues in turn produce many blue offspring. In our breeding flocks, however, only blue males of the finest color are used. Approximately 50% of the baby chicks will be all blue. The other 50% will be black, white, and black/white combinations.
