Does anyone know of any call duck breeders that raise good quality Magpie colored ones? I have pet quality ones now and want to improve them.

Thanks everyone.

The difference is that magpies are smaller and, significantly, have very specific color patterns that are acceptable in show birds. Anconas are larger and their coloration can be highly variable.

Very few magpies meet the criteria for proper coloration. Dave Holderread is the only breeder I know of who reliably provides proper coloration, and I don't think he does the calls. Here are some of my (soon to be sold) magpies from Holderread, with good (but not perfect) coloration. You will not often see it even as good as this:
