    i hatched out 5 call eggs ..2 of them are yellow ..at 4 weeks they are starting to look whiteish with some yellow.

    the yellow is still the down feathers, so will those 2 turn white. im still new to calls my female hatched out 10 on her own and most are dark colored (daddy is really dark with some green and mama is lighter with grays) then we have another female that is very light gray. so any ideas?

    Yellow duckling usually mean white ducks. But we need a Call expert here

    @RavynFallen can help with colors.. Congrats on the ducklings.

    And a tag I missed when I wasn't getting notifs... thank you, Miss Lydia! :)



    Miss Lydia is correct that yellow usually turns white... but there are some exceptions... I'm having a hard time picturing what the parents colors are... can you post pics of them? And the ducklings? Might be able to give you some insight then... :)
