The Swedish is a domestic duck first bred by farmers in Europe as early as 1835. They were imported into North America in 1884 and included in the APA Standard in 1904.

DescriptionEdit

Compared to Cayugas and Orpingtons, Swedish are broader and shorter in body length, giving it a stockier appearance. The head is oval shaped, and the bill is of medium length. It has a body carriage of 20 degrees above horizontal. [2]

This breed is exceptionally hardy, produces superior meat, and has good camouflage.
