    I went to the auction Saturday and what to my eyes did i see but a pair of Call Ducks [​IMG]
    I have been going to this auction for 3 years and have never seen a call duck there so i was like [​IMG]
    They were small and cute but i did not know what they were i have seen snowy , chocolate, pastel but never any like these.
    My first thought and still is they are mixed the drake has orange feet with a few black spots but the hens legs and feet are black.

    I bought them brought them home and gave them a nice bath here are pics of them all clean and Beautiful.

    Doe's anyone know what they are [​IMG]

    Congratulations on your find! Those are nice. I'm not sure what variety they are, but I'd imagine they are mixed. The one with the black bill.... its a silver or silver mix. As far as I know, only the silver variety have a black bill. Pretty birds.

    Quote:I have searched the web over and found only east Indies with black legs.
    Been on 2 hours searching and came up with nothing that even comes close to looking like these [​IMG]

    Well i'm 100% sure they are mixed but with "what?" i can't find a black spotted bantam duck anywhere.

    I know the drake is a blue magpie the hen probably is to just not good in coloring she rminds me of a splashed but with a darker shade of blue I know they have been working on a color like that bit can't remember what they called it

    Quote:Thank you! I looked up Magpies and yes that is what the drake is i'm glad to know what he is.
    The hen i was thinking splash too but i can't find any info on those or pics

    If i breed the magpie drake to a white female could i get his color i know how to do the breed back to get a certain color and i was wondering what color to use?

    What about the hen what would be a good match for her?
