    I had 2 Indian runners, unfortunately our female was attacked. We went and got a young call duck & I'm noticing some differences in behaviors. We also ordered 3 females another Indian, a pekin, & a crested, any advice on the different breeds can we mix them safely? They are pets not worried about eggs or breeding.

    Well, with the call being so small, you will need to be careful since your other ducks are larger and the pekin is huge. If it is female you will need to be careful with mating, if male you will need to be careful with fighting with another male.

    I don't have calls but they can fly so you will need to cover their run to ensure that it does not fly off. I don't think that they have different requirements than others but I'm not sure.
