    Is there a size difference between show/breeder quality and pet quality??? and how big are they compared to your average hen? Looking into getting some but I don't want my mom to be upset if they are bigger then expected. Thanks! Pics would be helpful!

    Yes pet quality call ducks are usually larger than SQ birds. Is the hen LF or bantam?

    Not sure what "LF" stands for... I think the lady has a bunch of hens and I was going to get some BQ hatching eggs and I was worried about how big they'd be when they grow up. (I'm getting them from eBay so I haven't seen them in person.)

    Oh, gotcha! ;) I'm pretty sure they're bantam! I'm getting them from duckhousedogs on ebay.
