    I have a pair of call ducks. They are SO cute and pretty. I was just wondering if call ducks really can fly because mine never do.

    Yes, they can fly.. I have call ducks also, and right now, all are flighted, except for one or two..They have never flown out of there pen (which is rather large). BUT I have seen one or 2 of them fly the entire length of the pen without gaining much height... I generaly keep them clipped until I see one or 2 of them practicing, then do the clipping... I dont want to take the chance that something might startle them into thinking there Eagles and want to soar the open sky..I figured once it got started, they would always try...
