    I was told the two on the left are Silver Calls when I bought them, but on another topic I followed the link to Feathersite and saw the Silver ones there...After seeing those I'm wondering if mine are not Silver and the guy may have just mixed them up with a different color when he told me as we were looking at other colors that day as well. So if not Silver then what color? Anyone have a guess? The girl in the middle is a blue and the two on the right are Khaki.

    To me those look like a splash from blues. Normally when people talk about silver ducks they mean a silver version of the wild pattern. Examples are silver wood ducks, silver bahama pintails, that kind of thing. I saw some silver mallards online a few months back. I havent seen the pic at feathersite yet but your are either light blue or splash from blue parents.

    He had a whole flock of them in this color...I really don't care that they aren't Silver because they are pretty anyway and my DS was going to show the Khakis anyway, just wanted to know the real color...We just fell in love with the little buggers...Going back to get Chocolates sometime as well.

    Thanks for the input on their coloring I knew it didn't look anything like the pics I saw.
