    Hi All,

    I'm new to this site. Would any of you know what type of call ducks these are? I'm not sure if they are Pastels or Butterscotch since they look so similar from other pictures I've seen.Hopefully I posted the picture right..

    The colors look like the Call version of a Saxony!

    Those are Butters. Pastels (especially the hens) are slightly darker and do not have such distinct white eye stripes. There are a couple other giveaways that they are Butters, including that the drakes have the claret coloration extended on to the shoulders. That is caused by the light phase, which is a component of the Butterscotch color, but not Pastel.
