    [​IMG]Hi. I have a pair of call ducks that I got last year at an auction. When I got them, they already had feathers. Te female hasn't layed eggs yet. I don't know if she is too young or too old to lay. Please help![​IMG][​IMG]

    I'd say east indies too, very pretty too.

    I'm POSITIVE that it's a pair. One bigger with curly tail and a raspy quack. The other is smaller with no curly tail and a loud, rich quack.

    she's not eggbound because she is acting fine and if she was, she'd probably be dead by now
     
  10. Then I don't know.
