    At what age will call ducklings be able to fly? And at what age should I clip their wings?

    It depends on the breed of the duck. If it's a Pekin it'll never fly.

    My mallard started flying short distances around 10 weeks. Didn't take her long to decide it was fun and she was good at it and flew more.
    I think I saw that mallards start flying around 16 weeks somewhere, but if that's what I read, she didn't.

    I saw nothing on my quick search about when calls fly.
