    I was wondering what's the size differences in the bird full grown and when there first hatched and their eggs compared to other full sized ducks

    Here you go!
    These are all 1-2 days old. Small yellow is a call duck, large yellow is an ancona duck

    [​IMG]\White call duck vs full grown welsh harlequin duck. Calls can be 1/4 (small, show quality usually) to about 1/3 the size of a medium weight duck

    The two huge ones at the bottom are goose eggs, the small ones (green and cream) are call duck eggs, and the rest are ancona duck eggs

    If that lil Call was yellow and floating in the water it would look like a lil rubber ducky. So adorable.
