Swedish Blue Ducks
The Swedish Blue is a very hearty duck with a calm disposition. Similar to the Pekin Duck, the Swedish Blue has a slightly more upright stance.
The Swedish Blue is a medium-sized duck. It is short and broad and is about half as long as it is wide. The body is carried at an angle of about 20° to the horizontal.
There are three colour varieties, but only the blue is recognised in the standards of perfection. Blue, black and pale blue-white.
The world-wide conservation status of the Swedish Blue was listed as "critical" by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 2007 and in 2023 it was listed as "at risk/endangered" in Sweden, where the total population reported for 2021 was 282.
