    So I'm a beginner. Want to start keeping Call Ducks and hatch them on my own. I have read that there are sometimes hard to hatch etc. Looking for some tips on hatching and keeping call ducks and advise info etc welcome. Also would love to see pictures of peoples call ducks, pens/runs, so can get some ideas. My husband will be making there run and home. look forward to seeing pics and read your comments. thanks.

    Hi and welcome to BYC - glad to have you onboard. I have no experience of keeping ducks, but if you post your questions on the "Duck" forum i am sure that the duck experts will be very willing to help you out.

    All the best

    Welcome to Backyard chickens. I think I have read about calls having small beaks that make it hard for them to break the shell.
