Black Swedish is a domestic duck, a variety of the Swedish breed. Even though it is not standardized in the APA Standard of Perfection, one can create this breed by mating two Blue Swedishes.


Drakes and ducks are both very dark gray- close to black -with a white neck patch like most Swedish varieties. Bill, feet, and leg color will depend on the gender. Their stature is similar to Pekins. [2]
