    I picked this guy up a few weeks ago with some muscovies, I thought he was just a baby, but he hasnt grown a bit in his time here and he is always hanging with my Black East Indies and my White Call ducks. So I was thinking some kind of call. In size, he is smaller than all of my call ducks....so I no longer think he is a baby muscovie.

    Could someone tell me what he is? He is the coolest little guy I have, so he has a life time home!!! [​IMG]

    The coloring looks like magpie(of course, that is my VERY untrained eye talking).
    I can't be sure, but he looks a little large for a Call-Call x maybe?
    Anyway, he is sure a pretty little guy and sorry I don't have any better answer for you!

    Cute duckie. I would call him Robin Hood, because of his green cap.

    easttxchick might be talking about the large bill. But I don't have much experience with calls so it could just be a pet quality call.

    I'm definitely not an expert on Calls by any means, but I have been interested in them for some time. I would say that your duck is a pet-quality Magpie Call, but that's just my opinion. Pretty cute little fella! [​IMG]

    That is a very large bill for a call. I had my blue call duck cross with my mallard last year and got a couple ducklings that looked similar to that. The majority were blue fawn though. Maybe it's a magpie call X mallard.

    I don't know what breed, but he's a cutie! I would love to find out what kind of duck he is because I might want one.
