Do call ducks bite or peck?
Like any duck, they can, but it doesn't really hurt...hard to keep from laughing at them when they do it, really, unless you have a really aggressive drake....now those can really pinch!
My calls have never bit me and rarely pinch me unless it's a broody hen.
That is an individual animal question, not a breed question. I have Callducks that will grab a piece of skin on your hand, and bite down and actually twist their heads.. It hurts quite a bit. I also have specimens that have never once even thought of biting.
I have 2 Call drakes that are as aggressive and "bitey" as Calls can be. They like to grab the skin between your thumb and index finger and hang on. I think it's pretty hilarious, myself.
One of my drakes likes to grab me by the pants leg and shake it like a dog with a bone. I act like I'm scared of him sometimes just to boost his ego in front of the ladies.
I think I'd rather one of my Calls get ahold of me than one of my big ganders. Talk about painfull! and it can be a bit difficult to get one to let loose, too!
My female call will try and bite you when you pick up her drake, but the drake is an angel and hasn't ever offered to bite. Just depends on the duck.
Yeah...unlike the ganders, the drakes are really easy going. I've about had it with hissing, threatening ganders!
They are very sweet. Although my Magpie drake is a little pushy at times, but I think part of it is he is glad to see me.
