    Has anybody crossed the snowy pattern with a butterscotch or magpie pattern ?

    I keep calls together with Campbells and I've had no problems whatsoever. The Campbells are big enough to hurt the call ducks purposefully or accidentally; but everyone is happy and respectful of each others space.
    Considering their size, call ducks generally punch over their weight.
    They make up for their diminutive size by having boatloads of tenacity when it comes to the pecking order!

    I've got one that hatched this year that's snowy colored (not a true snowy) if you are interested

    Anybody have chocolates or magpies (any color)?
    I'm looking for a few more. Willing to do some trading if anyone's interested. Above are some of my calls. Some are for sale or trade.

    Oh, yes! But I wouldn't dare take it if it was raised outdoors. Wobbles is a house duck and I'd never force a duck to live inside once it was used to the outdoors and vice versa. :/

    I wouldn't make it shallower than a foot at the center, but you can use sloped sides. That makes it a little easier for them to get in and out rather than making the whole pond a foot deep.
