    I am thinking of getting some Call Drakes to add to my all drake flock of Cayugas and Buffs but will it be safe to do that? Will the larger ducks harass/hurt the Calls? If not, will they flock together? Also, if I get some some girl Call ducks will the larger drakes try and mate with them? Would that be dangerous to the Calls? Could the Call actually hatch ducklings?

    I personally am of the mindset to not mix extreme sizings, i keep my calls separate, while I don't think my bigger ducks would hurt them, i would rather not take the chance, and frankly, a drake is a drake whether it be my large Muscovy or my wee call boy, they don't "get" their size, think little dog syndrome.

    I wouldn't put it past a larger drake to try out a female call, not sure how that would work, mind you. I call them pound cake ducks.. they are really, really small birds.
