When do Call Ducks lay?

Are Call ducks seasonal layers or lay regularly? When do they usually start laying? Do they lay big eggs? Are they good moms?

My BEI lay around March, and again in the Fall. Their eggs are about the size of a large chicken egg. Mine are good mothers.

When do they usually start laying? I believe it's spring and early summer but my calls haven't laid yet so I am not for sure.
Do they lay big eggs? No their eggs are petite
Are they good moms? I've heard they were good moms

Mine start laying in January(seriously in February)-depends on your weather.  Eggs are a bit larger than a banty egg.  They are FANTASTIC moms and if you are lucky enough to get a broody-they take it VERY seriously. smile
