    Last week I bought a pair of call ducks. I was told they were magpie, but the only pics I can find of magpie are black and white magpies, not sure if there are any other color of magpie [​IMG] We don't care either way, we love them, but just am curious to find out [​IMG] Here are a couple of pics, not the best and then my battery died and I have to work today so I can try and take some tonight after work [​IMG] We love these little cuties [​IMG] Also, when does the tail curl on these guys? My rouen drake curled at around 4 months and these guys are around 6 months. Thanks for the help [​IMG]

    Thank you, doesn't matter like I said, we are in LOVE with these little chubby duckies [​IMG] Is there a link that gives more detail with coloring? I found a couple but not really helpful links about their coloring [​IMG]

    Are you sure they aren't pastel or butterscotch?

    They don't look anything like snowys to me. [​IMG]
