    I bought some ducks (breeds unknown) and have now discovered this. So, I think the females are white call ducks as they are pretty small, but does anyone know what this drake is or what the ducklings will resemble? And to all the Duck Whisperers out there....do I move their nest to the duck hut OR do I erecet a structure around the spot where they prefer to lay? I'm just worried because I saw a *racoon* last night. Thanks All.

    I'd move the eggs and lock the ducks up at night. Where there is one raccoon, there are a dozen. Sooner or later, they will come for the ducks.

    the drake looks like a snowy call. I have one that look just like him.
