    Quote:I'm not sure what her name is, but it was a lady about 45 minutes from me who's been breeding for show quality birds. She had more, but she had already sold them. She said these were the "best of the best" that she had.

    My friend got her Show Quality White Calls and her Show Quality Magpie Calls.

    Very nice.

    When I was there picking up Flake. (Black call duck) You showed me a nest with a little call on it. Did she ever hatch those eggs?

    Quote:No, she didn't. I don't think the eggs she was setting on were fertile. We finally broke up her nest.

    Thank you! I really like the butterscotch, too.

    We're also going to try building some more of the pens that these are in....we have so many ideas for uses! Bantam pens, brooder pen, huge rabbit hutch, broody mama pen, QUAIL PENS!

    Here's a better pic of what the pens look like. They're 8x4 and about 4' high. With 3 access doors!

    We got a wonderful deal, too! Their breeder also included some free books on calls, and she gave us the heaters for their swimming pools!​
