    Hi guys just wondering if my two ducks are pure call? They are supposed to be, both are 5 weeks old. Will appreciate your input. [​IMG]

    I'm afraid not. :/ Those are definitely not call ducks. I can't say what they are, it's hard to tell what breeds made 'em, but they're mutts.

    Are you sure? I admit without knowing what the other half is it's hard to say, but the only call-like features I can see are on that gray colored one. There's a hint of a dome to his head, but the rest don't show any phenotypical hallmarks.

    Did the person who sold you the ducks say they were 100% purebred calls, or something? You said in your OP that they were "supposed to be". I mean if it's not important to you, that's awesome, they're still a buncha cuties! But if you only bought them BECAUSE they were calls, and you wanted to either breed them or sell them, I'm afraid you were misinformed. :/ Where did you get hem from?

    Sorry, the bottom photo. :) Again, do you plan to breed or sell these ducks?

    They don't look at all like calls to me. Maybe 1/2 low quality, but they are CUTE!
