    Hi guys, some of you may remember my efforts to breed pied call ducks, well I am getting colser.... bit by bit, anyway here is one of the most stunning pied ducklings that I have bred.... still no call blood in there tho.... but this girl was raised with a gray call, and yes its a boy [​IMG] Citychicker..... what do you think? Dad is that black pied runner boy that I posted pics of way back when.

    Gorgeous!!!!!!!! Bemba- yesterday I spent the day with a friend who also has Runners and while I was there a gorgeous little one hatched. Her little one has swapped colouring to yours - mostly black with yellow around the eyes and patches over the body and wings. Also a very orange beak and cute little patterns on the feet. We are so hoping this little one turns out black and white in the same pattern as it grows.

    It really is a slow process ...I have just yesterday borrowed some girls for my breeding program so I can still get out a few settings of eggs so I havent wasted a whole year after not getting what I expected this year.

    Thanks guys.... I think she is stunning, the first pic has dad, and the second pic, mum. CityChicker, I haven't bred another one near as pied as this one, and well, its the only duckling that I have bred from the black pied male, all the others are from the drake in the second pic, and she is the mother of all the pied babies, so to have this much white, does that mean dad is a bibbed not a pied? or could this be just a double factor pied?
