Svenks Gul Anka
The Swedish yellow duck is a rare breed derived from the Swedish domestic duck. The breed was developed in the 20th century and was common until the 1950s. The breed survived thanks to a single breeder, an older woman from Billinge, who had been leading a herd of yellow ducks from the 1930s.
Developed from Yellow Duck, Blue Swedish Duck and kaki campell English duck. It was standardized in the 1920s. It was considered extinct in the 1970s, but another group was later found on a farm in Billinge.
Yellow ducks lay more eggs than blue ducks and are slightly lighter on average.
