Call Duck Breeders

Discussion in 'Ducks' started by ducklover15, Jul 13, 2010.

  1. I've been looking for someone who breeds call ducks for quiet awhile. I'm looking for one white female call duck that's of decent quality.

    I'm located in southern Michigan.

    I'm willing the drive a decent distance, so I'll go to Ohio or Indiana.

    I tried getting a hold of MJ Waterfowl who are suppose to only be an hour and a half from me but the number was disconnected...

    Any help is greatly appreciated! [​IMG]

    I have white calls. They came from a breeder here in Eastern Ohio who was into showing. I believe the male I have was shown, but I don't know if he placed. I have just a trio of adults now (downsized half the flock) and two young ones that are quacking loud like females. I'm going to Mount Hope swap this weekend and could probably part with a girl. Not sure if I really want to continue with Calls. I had Pastels that I recently sold to a local friend.
  3. Do you know the contacts for that breeder?

    I sadly can't do a long trip this weekend or I would definitely want one of your girls. I found someone who has grays so I'm making a drive really early tomorrow to get one. If you ever come near Toledo or Maumee and still have whites let me know! [​IMG]

    Quote:The breeder got out of Calls. My friend and I took her last 2 pens of birds (4 breeds and something like 20 birds) last year. I'm down to just the whites. I don't think I'm taking them to sale this weekend. I just can't decide if I want to keep them through winter again. Ducks aren't really a lot of work, though.

    Quote:Especially the little tiny Calls - they eat about 1/5 of the food my big, old Pekin duck does, and they make about 1/5 of the poop. [​IMG]

    I know a couple people here in WI who breed Calls (a few really nice quality), ducklover15 - but that's quite the drive for you. [​IMG]
  6. Yeah that is quite a drive... [​IMG]

    Well if I don't find anyone near my area hopefully duckluck will be coming my way again soon. [​IMG]

    ducklover15..have you thought about or would be interested in black east indie ducks? I live in SE MI (Lenawee County) and have had a decent hatch this year. I have a picture of 2 on my BYC page. LMK, thanks.
  8. Annarie - You actually brought up my old ad! Hehe. Thanks for those! I checked on there and that's where I got 2 new ducks today. But I hadn't seen two of those ads. [​IMG] I just sent some e-mails!

    7961 - I got my first black east indie girl today. I really only have room for one more duck and it has to be a white female. If the BEI grows on me I may build a new pen and I'll contact you! Thanks!
