    I have fertile Call duck eggs which contain the 'stuff' from a male runner duck. I was wondering if anyone has any of these mixbreeds, if so, can you post pics? More specifocally, a brown call duck x black runner duck? Any pics of callxrunner are appreciated!

    i wanted to hatch some but never got the chance. i wanted them to look like mini runners. was going to do male call and female runner.

    ^ I did female call over male runner, which nearly destroyed the call duck. Won't be happening again. [​IMG]

    HERE ARE THE PICS OF THE 1ST HATCHED BABY!

    Very Cute!! Congratulations. It may just be the lighting or the flash- but that fuzz looks the colour of mine that turn out to be blue.

    The dad is a blueish-gray color with a white spot on his chest so maybe the baby will take after him. I also noticed the baby has the same color feet as the father.

    that is too cute! i cant wait to see if they stand upright. another reason i wanted to mix the call and runner is i wanted a small duck that was a better egg layer and of coarse cute and small.
