    Quote:They look like Calls - the drake isn't as "streamlined" as my Mallard drakes.

    That being said, they aren't the cute-as-a-button, rounded, stubby little Call ducks that are so sought after (I'm looking for some Calls too - my little drake needs a mate!). No offense, Rebel Rooster - they're very pretty. I'm was actually tempted to buy some of your eggs because I love the look of your lighter colored girl - but, if she's the color I think she is, it won't pass on to any of the ducklings (except in recessive form that won't pop back up unless the ducklings are bred back together - and that's a LOT of work!) - all the ducklings should be regular mallard-colored, and I already have Mallards - I want something different looking!

    No Offence taken at all!!! There are Rowans in the mix I'm sure... Didn't really know what else to call em'... I'm new to ducks...
    Last Spring a dear sweet friend of mine from southern Ga. sent me a few duck eggs with a silkie order... I put em in the bator and 28 days later... "quack-quack" she had a pond full of these ducks! Still does I think! She sent me goose egg several weeks ago... holy cow! Looks like a little football! It's in the bator growin' though...
    Thank yawl for lookin'
