    Came across a pair of Chestnut call ducks for sale on line, I never heard of such a color variety, anybody know what they might look like? Did a google search on the color, but no luck.

    What did the ad say?

    It's similar to the grey or mallard call duck. It's not considered a standard breed.

    Did they mention chestnut breasted call or just chestnut call??

    Either way it's the way the coloring is on the chest and or back of the duck. It's kind of like the female grey but lighter brown in color not a tan just slightly lighter. If that makes any sense.

    Chest's are brown actually more like a Reddish color. not brown, my mistake..

    These are NOT calls but just to give you and idea of the coloring for chestnut.
