    Sinitus in Call Ducks?

    I take a needle end for a syringe and actually stick it in the sinus cavities and push the infection out then attach the syringe with baytril and inject the medication, this takes practice but is the most efficient way to get rid of it also use oxine in their drinking water helps too

    Pastels sell very well as we'll as butterscotch. But in order to get these high prices for calls you have to have a name built up other wise don't look to get over $75 a pair out of them.

    female call duck

    Calls will lay just about all year round if you let them. As a breeder low protein diet is a must through the fall/winter to prevent laying. I feed around 12% protein right now I will begin to switch onto layer around the last of February.
