    I just brought home day old call babies [​IMG] Well When I went to add them in with my 1 1/2 week old mallard babies lets just say it didnt go well at all! My mallards wanted them for lunch! The mallards were going crazy trying to peck the baby call's heads off! Is this normal? Will they ever get along? HELP!!

    the call ducks are too small to go in with your other ducks. The only time we mix standards with the calls is when the calls are 2 weeks old and the standards just hatch.
