I have 7 Call Duck hens and no drake. Last year they were in with a Lavender Runner drake and his hens and they were fairly quiet. I ended up with 7 Call/Runner babies though so I moved the Runners out to another yard. I'm glad it worked out, the babies are great but it's too dangerous to have a Runner drake mating with a tiny Call hen, he could harm or drown her in the process. This year these hens are SO loud, especially Holly the alpha hen. If I get a drake will they be quieter like they were before?
