    So cute! You have a couple of the Calls turned around though. Your Butterscotch drake as pictured is actually your Blue Fawn and the Blue Fawn is the Butterscotch. Your Butter hen really looks more like a Pastel too, but she is I'm sure just a darkly colored Butter. Adorable! I have some new birds coming from them again this year as well. [​IMG]

    Well I am going to have to call Holderread, about this mispairing, because they were tagged and paired and if they are mispaired I just may have a problem, thank you CityChicker for bringing this to my attention, and yes, and about the Australian Spotted (In spite of their name, these birds are an American creation, a bantam breed developed in the 1920s and first exhibited in 1928. Mallards, Pintails and Calls are said to have been the foundation stock, with possibly a trace of a (now unknown) spotted species of Australian wild duck), because of there breed line they are counted as calls, and the Minature silver appleyard, well (This breed also appears in miniature, as the Bantam Appleyard. as the Silver Call and as the Miniature silver appleyard call) the quotes in parenthsis came from wikipedia along with this (The Call Duck is a bantam breed of domesticated duck raised primarily for decoration or as pets. Call ducks look similar to Mallards, but are smaller in size.) and according to leading call duck breeders around the world they are not just that, but they are classified as calls, I do not want you to take offense to this dutchhollow, but they are calls, and thank you for the beautiful comment, I have truly admired them sitting in my swing behind there pens, I sit in the early a.m. and drink my coffee watching them and they are just so amazing and sweet, oh and so darn vocal, LOL. I just can't wait until spring gets here and they go to having babies, oh boy!!
