    I bought a pair of call ducks at an auction today, but am unsure of the colors. I think the hen is a grey, baffled about the drake.

    After doing more research and according to the UK standards, they are considered to be mallard calls.

    Thanks so far and if anyone else knows better please advise me.

    Call ducks is the breed they are. Their color is what you're asking about. The male looks somewhat like my snowy male.

    I added a picture of my snowy drake

    The little brown hen in the rear of the picture is a grey call (mallard markings)

    I had a pair of whites a few years ago and really enjoyed them, so when I saw these today I knew they were coming home with me.
