    I have got 4 newly hatched ducklings 2 of them being calls but I am unsure of there colours . The fertile eggs I got them from had five calls:1 white boy, 1 trout boy, 2 apricot girls and one mallard like call girl. Does anyone know the colour they will be or suspected parents of the two? :/

    Here they are: :)

    Your calls looks so much like the 2 I used to have, its crazy! Even right down to the size difference! My little black and yellow ended up being black with a white bib. The yellow one (also the larger of my 2) ended up being blue with a white bib.
    You might want to post this in the duck section, you'll probably get more responses that way. They're super cute, good luck with them!

    Here are the 2 I used to have, though they're much older than yours in this picture. Not the best pic, but it might help you compare [​IMG]
