The Black Swedish Duck is easily recognized by its dark color and the large white spot on its neck and chest. Black Swedish Ducks are excellent foragers, making them a great addition to backyard flocks. This breed is calm and easy to handle, and their easy-going disposition makes them an ideal family pet, especially for young children. Originating in Pomerania, formerly a part of Sweden, this breed is also very hardy and thrives in cold climates.

We can not ship ducks to Hawaii.

    I ordered a sexed female and that’s what I got, but she lays white eggs, and not the blue/green tinted eggs I was hoping for. She and her blue Swedish sister are beautiful and because they’re so talkative they make fantastic “watch ducks” but I was just hoping for some colored duck eggs.

    Swedish Ducks Black or Blue Full of Personality

    I have both Black and Blue Swedish Ducks and they are funny and full of personality…easy to raise, smart and they are spoiled rotten…you should see them interact w my Great Pyraneese “HellBitch”, Shes 100lb Duck or maybe theyre 6lb great pyrs, but they have fun together…i recommend the swedish

    Good watch dog

    These guys come soo tiny and seem frail. Don’t be desieved. Hardy little guys that grow up to have big attitudes. They let me know if someone comes around (man or beast). Well suited for cold weather and have become strong leaders for my flock

    Great ducks

    Great Ducks. Wonderful egg layers. Beautiful to look at too.

    Good looking duck

    I have two Black Swedes (and three of the Blue Swedes). They’re very hardy ducks – like to sleep outside and they get along well with the other breeds. They’re not super calm – still trying to tame them to be more friendly. Not mean, but they don’t come up and greet me like the Muscovoys do. Overall I like them though!

    Beautiful ducks with nice personality. We trained them to herd into their building at night. We have predator issues.

    Outstanding ducks, geese and service.

    Picked up baby ducks and geese this morning. All 50 were alert and energetic. Tonight they are eating and drinking well. We couldn’t be happier or more satisfied.

    Absolutely amazing breed!

    In my experience, the Black Swedish duck is amazing! My kiddos just absolutely loved her! We would take walks around the neighborhood. Our neighbors got a kick out of Ducky! Highly recommended breed to train living in the house!

    Thank You Cackle Hatchery

    Thank You! The chicks arrived early this morning. On little turkey did not make it;however, you sent an extra so we received the exact number of (living) birds we ordered. They are all doing very well! As always, we are very happy with out ordering experience with Cackle Hatchery! Thank you!
