    Here is Mauricio and Nina. They are smaller than my Mandies. I had no idea these ducks were this small!

    Here is a pic of them with the mandies. Mandies are smaller than calls and the teals are smaller than the mandies.

    You'll love your ringed teals! Mine make the coolest noises! They are very small and very good fliers, once they learn their aviary, they swoop in and out of every obstacle; its really neat to watch!

    I kept the original adults and one pair of their babies this year. My hen ended up giving me 17 babies out of 23 eggs. I'm sure she would have been even more productive if I didn't let her sit on the eggs. Here is my male and female.

    and how can you resist their babies! You wait till spring, they are awesome!
