EEEEEEEEEEE they're so cute!!! Oh, that little hen is just so adorable <3 How are they socially? Do they let you handle them? Are they mixing in with your flock okay?

Here are photos of Australian Spotted miniature ducks from Holderread's website. The coloring appears to be identical to the Chestnut call duck. It appears that Dave used this breed to develop the Chestnut call duck.

Amykins, they are very scared and skiddish, afraid of people, but they are getting along well with the other birds. This little hen is the smallest call duck I've ever seen in my life. She is adorable, just hope she doesn't have trouble laying eggs, or fertile evgs being so small.

Drove to Oregon this a.m. and picked up my new call ducks. 780 mile round trip.

The 4 spotted call drakes and 3 spotted hens, had no idea how light colored the hens are, and love the color of the drakes, plus 1 blue snowey drake, resembles blue fawn to me. Oversize white hen, oversize gray hen and oversize blue bibbed hen, hoping to have some eggs on the a.m.
